A bill of lading duly issued1 is prima facie evidence of the receipt by the carrier2 of the goods3 as described4 in it5. Proof to the contrary is, however, not admissible when the bill of lading has been transferred to a third person acting in good faith6.
If the number of packages or pieces is stated in the bill of lading but the words 'weight unknown' is inserted, the bill of lading is prima facie evidence of the number but not of the weight
