704. Consignor as agent of consignee.

Where consignor and consignee are different parties, and property either resides in the consignee throughout the period of carriage or passes to the consignee on or before delivery to the carrier, it may be presumed that the consignor concludes the contract of carriage as agent for the consignee and that the consignor cannot sue on the contract unless specially entitled by its terms1. In such a case, the consignee, as principal, is the proper party to sue on the contract. Such a presumption certainly applies where the consignor sells goods to a consignee and property passes to the consignee,
