Is sea waybill the same as the telex release?

1 answer

No, a telex release is not the same as a sea waybill. The former is a message that the shipping line sends to the cargo’s destination port. The agent at the loading port will release this electronic message when the shipper surrenders the original BOL. The telex release, therefore, becomes important if the BOL can’t be sent to the destination for cargo release. It helps the agent at the load port send instructions to the agent at the destination or discharge port, saving mailing expenses. On the other hand, a sea waybill is issued when both parties know each other and aim to quicken the transportation process. Lastly, unlike the telex release, parties involved don’t issue, and print the original BOL.
