The proof of delivery
The proof of delivery is an important document in the transport business, which proves the proper delivery of a shipment. The proof of delivery is issued by the forwarding agent. Upon delivery, the driver will ask the recipient to sign for the proof of delivery.
If damage to the goods or packaging is evident, it is essential that this is documented on the proof of delivery so that any claims for compensation can be asserted subsequently. If the proof of delivery is signed without an additional note, it is considered “clean” receipt. This means that the goods were delivered in perfect condition.
With Cargoboard, delivery receipts are usually signed on the driver’s electronic device. This has the advantage that the proof of delivery is available and can be viewed immediately after delivery.
