Shipping Terms Glossary: House Bill of Lading (HBL)

A bill of lading issued by the freight forwarder to a shipper as a receipt of goods. This bill will show the shipper as the consignor. It will also show the buyer or importer of record as consignee. 

A house bill allows for the transfer of ownership of goods from the shipper to the buyer, once released.
