Consignor
The consignor, in a contract of carriage, is the person sending a shipment to be deliveredwhether by land, sea or air. Some carriers, such as national postal entities, use the term"sender" or "shipper" but in the event of a legal dispute the proper and technical term"consignor" will generally be used.If Sender sends a widget to Receiver via a delivery service, Sender is the consignor and Receiveris the consignee.
Consignee
In a contract of carriage, the consignee is the person to whom the shipment is to be deliveredwhether by land, sea or air.
Disadvantages
-This is a difficult area of law in that it regulates the mass transportation industry which cannotalways guarantee arrival on time or that goods will not be damaged in the course of transit.-A further two problems are that unpaid consignors or freight carriers may wish to hold goodsuntil payment is made, and fraudulent individuals may seek to take delivery in place of thelegitimate consignees.-The key to resolving such disputes lies in the documentation. But it is another name of aproblematic situation. Because building and maintaining papers is always difficult and alwaysthere is chance to mismatch with law, so any of the party can be indifferent to make any paperagreement.
