To the waybill the sender must attach the documents specified in the special regulations. If this is not possible, the sender provides them in the appropriate place and time required. In the waybill should be given information about the types of documents attached, or the time and place of their submission. Value of the shipment must be declared, if the value of the shipment is no due to the supplier's or seller account, nor with the current price list.
As opposed to the bill of lading, waybill can not be traded as a security. In the implementation of standardized, common transport waybill may be substituted for the contract of carriage.

The carrier has access only to consolidated waybill MAWB.
