AS 45.02.323. Form of Bill of Lading Required in Overseas Shipment; "Overseas.".

(a) Where the contract contemplates overseas shipment and contains a term C.I.F. or C. & F. or F.O.B. vessel, the seller, unless otherwise agreed, must obtain a negotiable bill of lading stating that the goods have been loaded on board or, in the case of a term C.I.F. or C. &. F., received for shipment.

(b) Where in a case within (a) of this section a bill of lading has been issued in a set of parts, unless otherwise agreed, if the documents are not to be sent from abroad the buyer may demand tender of the full set; otherwise only one part of the bill of lading need be tendered. Even if the agreement expressly requires a full set,

(1) due tender of a single part is acceptable within the provisions on cure of improper delivery (AS 45.02.508 (a)) and

(2) even though the full set is demanded, if the documents are sent from abroad the person tendering an incomplete set may nevertheless require payment upon furnishing an indemnity that the buyer in good faith considers adequate.

(c) A shipment by water or by air or a contract contemplating the shipment is "overseas" insofar as by usage of trade or agreement it is subject to the commercial, financing, or shipping practices characteristic of international deep water commerce.
