The Air Way bill is a non-negotiable Bill of Lading, and is used as a receipt for cargo and a contract for transportation between shipper and air carrier. Unlike an ocean carrier with a „to order“ Ocean Bill of Lading, the air carrier must deliver the shipment to the consignee named on the non-negotiable Air Waybill. International air waybills or „airline air waybills,“ are used by the air carriers; „House air waybills, “ are used as receipts by Freight Forwarders who then consolidate them with the air carriers international air waybills.
