B/L without the terms and conditions of carriage
(the rights, responsibilities and liabilities of the carrier
and the shipper) printed on its back. Otherwise, in size, it is no different from the long form
B/L. The shipper
and the carrier are bound
by the conditions of carriage
(governed generally by the older Hague rules
or by the more recent Hague-Visby Rules) whether printed on the B/L or not.
