Where the Hague-Visby Rules apply, a bill of lading must on demand be issued by the carrier to the shipper showing, among other things, the leading marks necessary for the identification of the goods, the number of packages or pieces, or the quantity or weight, as the case may be, and the apparent order and condition of the goods1. Such a bill is, as against the shipper, prima facie evidence of the receipt by the carrier of such goods; where the bill of lading has been transferred to a third party acting in good faith, it is conclusive evidence2.
