Inventory Shipping - Bill of Lading Instructions (Container)

This document is created from the Shipping Worksheet and is sent to the Steamship line. It can also be sent to the Customer in conjunction with the BOL and Commerical Invoice. 

Letter of Credit & Export Shipping Information
The Bill of Lading Instruction is one of those documents that also pulls information from the Letter of Credit (LC) for specific fields. If there isn't an LC or certain information is not available on the LC, then it will reference the Export Shipping Information (ESI) section on the Sales Order. If that is also blank then it will pull the information directly from the Worksheet (WKS). The diagram below demonstrates the hierarchy of which form and field, on that form, that the information will get pulled from first.
