Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    If the shipper or receiver signs that the seal is intact, and the product is in good condition, then you can safely sign the Bill of Lading.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    If the shipper or receiver signs that the seal is intact and the product is in good condition, it does not necessarily mean that you can safely sign the Bill of Lading. While the condition of the seal and product is an important factor, there may be other considerations to take into account before signing the Bill of Lading, such as verifying the accuracy of the shipment details, ensuring that all necessary documentation is in order, and confirming that any special instructions or requirements have been met. Therefore, it is not safe to assume that the mere signing of the seal and product condition by the shipper or receiver guarantees the safety of signing the Bill of Lading.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Signing the Bill of Lading indicates that the product has been received in good condition. If the product is in poor condition, signing the Bill of Lading would be incorrect as it would imply that the product was received in satisfactory condition. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

    How much weight makes a full load of onions?

    • A.

      880 bags

    • B.

      50 pounds

    • C.

      $5,000 worth of onions

    • D.

      44,000 pounds

    Correct Answer
    D. 44,000 pounds
    Explanation
    A full load of onions would weigh 44,000 pounds. This is because the question asks for the weight of a full load of onions, and out of the given options, 44,000 pounds is the only one that represents a weight. The other options are either a number of bags, a weight in pounds, or a value in dollars, which are not relevant to determining the weight of a full load of onions.

    Correct Answer
    C. "The seal is intact and the product is in good condition"
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The seal is intact and the product is in good condition." This is because the Bill of Lading is a legal document that serves as evidence of the contract of carriage between the shipper and the carrier. It includes important information about the shipment, such as the condition of the goods at the time of loading. By having the shipper write that the seal is intact and the product is in good condition, it ensures that any potential damage or issues with the shipment can be identified and addressed accordingly.

    Correct Answer
    D. Call your dispatcher
    Explanation
    If you notice that your load of onions has been damaged, the best course of action would be to call your dispatcher. This is because your dispatcher is responsible for coordinating and managing your deliveries, and they need to be informed about any issues or problems that may arise. By calling your dispatcher, you can report the damage and discuss the next steps to take, such as returning to the shipper or finding a solution to salvage the load. Continuing to your scheduled appointment or throwing the damaged onions away without notifying your dispatcher could lead to further complications and potential loss.

    Explanation
    It is important to stop a few miles from your delivery to check that the load looks good because this allows you to ensure that the cargo is secure and has not shifted during transit. By inspecting the load, you can identify any potential issues or damage and take necessary actions to prevent accidents or further damage. This practice helps to maintain safety on the road and ensures that the delivery arrives intact.
