I understand your question Dontgetit. In your example, both the receiver and the driver have an original, signed copy of the B/L. That’s great if the receiver is the party paying the freight bill. If it is the shipper, or some other third party, in some unique, rare instances, they too might require an actual signed original copy. In the situation that I am familiar with, it was a case of someone manipulating information on a scanned or photocopied B/L from sometime in the past, that prompted the customer to request only originals going forward. As I said, rare and certainly unique.
