They would probably instruct him to issue a receipt to the shipper or his representative (e. g. a freight forwarder). He should not accept for carriage original bills of lading made out "to order", or where there was no named destination or where the destination was qualified, e. g.

He should not accept original bills of lading for carriage if the shipper refuses to sign the receipt, or if no party is named as receiver in the bill of lading. He should not discharge against an original bill of lading carried on board if the discharge port is different from the destination shown in the bill of lading.
