CLECAT/ FIATA position on the draft UN/CEFACT Recommendation 12

In their respective capacity as European and worldwide representatives of freight forwarders and logistic operators, CLECAT and FIATA have followed with interest the work undertaken by ITPWG-TBG15 on a draft Recommendation 12 and Guidelines on Measures to Facilitate Maritime Transport Documents Procedures.

The draft recommendation 12 suggests that all traders involved in an international commercial transaction of goods encourage and support the use of a sea waybill to replace a bill of lading when the latter is deemed “unnecessary” (i.e. goods not intended to be sold in transit or no case for independent documentary credit).
