This enables the bill of lading representing the goods to be passed to a bank or an alternative buyer (perhaps in a chain of buyers) simply by the present title-holder writing the name of the next title-holder (the transferee) on the back of the bill of lading. A negotiable bill of lading is similar to a cloakroom ticket: whoever has possession of it can claim the goods.
