616. Sender's and consignee's rights of disposal in transit.

The sender normally has the right to dispose of the goods1. His right ceases to exist when the second copy2 of the consignment note is handed to the consignee or when the consignee exercises his right to require delivery of that copy and the goods3. If the sender provides expressly in the consignment note that the consignee should have the right of disposal, the consignee has that right from the time when the note is drawn up
