Straight Bill of Lading
A straight bill of lading indicates that the shipper will deliver the goods to the consignee. The document itself does not give title to the goods (nonnegotiable). The con¬signee need only identify himself to claim the goods. A straight bill of lading is often used when payment for the goods has been made in advance.
Shipper’s Order Bill of Lading
A shipper’s order bill of lading is a title document to the goods, issued to the order of a party, usually the shipper whose endorsement is required to effect its nego¬tiation. Because it is negotiable, a shipper’s order bill of lading can be bought, sold, or traded while goods are in transit and is commonly used for letter-of-credit transac¬tions. The buyer usually needs the original or a copy as proof of ownership to take possession of the goods.
An air waybill is a form of bill of lading used for the air transport of goods and is not negotiable - air waybill for a fuller explanation.

A claused bill of lading is a bill of lading which con¬tains notations which specify deficient condition(s) of the goods and/or packaging.
