Q: What is a Bill of Lading (BOL)?

A: A Bill of Lading (BOL) form plays a crucial role in making sure your freight is routed and transported quickly and efficiently. Using the Bill of Lading application in My Estes, you can specify all the details about your shipment, and the information will automatically be transmitted to Estes for processing.

Q: How do I create a BOL in My Estes?

A: Log in to My Estes to access our enhanced Bill of Lading application and follow the step-by-step instructions in the BOL Help section or download the BOL Help document.

Q: Can I arrange for Estes to pick up the freight listed on my BOL?

A: Yes. Simply click the Generate Pickup Request box when you are creating the BOL and enter the applicable pickup details. A pickup request will automatically be generated when you save the BOL.

Q: How can I see a list of my previous BOLs?

A: The BOL History section of the My Estes Bill of Lading application allows you to view previous BOL files. These historical files can be copied to create new BOLs, if necessary.

Q: Is there a way to create new BOLs using information from previous BOLs?

A: There are two ways to speed up the process of creating BOLs that are similar to BOLs you've created in the past:

  • By copying a previous BOL from your BOL history
  • By saving a BOL as a template

Q: Can I print shipping labels for my shipments?

A: Yes. Shipping labels can be created during the BOL setup process. You can also return to past BOLs and reprint their corresponding shipping labels if necessary.

Q: What do I need to include on the BOL to ensure that my freight is protected from freezing?

A: The words, “protect from freezing,” must appear on the BOL.
