What is a Seaway Bill?

A Seaway Bill is also known as an Express Release Bill of Lading, it is used in cases where the shipper has decided in advance to release their hold on the cargo immediately. In this case, an original is never issued. The shipper is not required to surrender anything back to the shipping company and neither is the importer, so freight is released as soon as it is available.
