Waybill

A document (that looks like a bill of lading) issued by a carrier that describes the goods to be transported and that details the shipping particulars. Waybills are issued by both air carriers (air waybills) and ship lines (sea waybills). They merely indicate that the stated goods were received by the carrier for transport, they do not convey title.

Waybill

A document describing goods to be transported, usually internationally. A carrier, such as a shipping line or airline, issues a waybill to prove that the goods have been received and are ready for transport.
