AS 45.07.202. Form of Warehouse Receipt; Essential Terms; Optional Terms.

(a) A warehouse receipt need not be in any particular form.

(b) Unless a warehouse receipt embodies within its written or printed terms each of the following, the warehouseman is liable for damages caused by the omission to a person injured:

(1) the location of the warehouse where the goods are stored;

(2) the date of issue of the receipt;

(3) the consecutive number of the receipt;

(4) a statement whether the goods received will be delivered to the bearer, to a specified person, or to a specified person or the order of the specified person;

(5) the rate of storage and handling charges, except that, if goods are stored under a field warehousing arrangement, a statement of that fact is sufficient on a nonnegotiable receipt;

(6) a description of the goods or of the packages containing them;

(7) the signature of the warehouseman, which may be made by an authorized agent;

(8) if the receipt is issued for goods of which the warehouseman is owner, either solely or jointly or in common with others, the fact of this ownership; and

(9) a statement of the amount of advances made and of liabilities incurred for which the warehouseman claims a lien or security interest (AS 45.07.209 ); if the precise amount of the advances made or of the liabilities incurred is, at the time of the issue of the receipt, unknown to the warehouseman or to an agent who issues it, a statement of the fact that advances have been made or liabilities incurred and the purpose of making the advances or incurring the liabilities is sufficient.

(c) A warehouseman may insert in the receipt any other terms that are not contrary to the provisions of the code and do not impair the warehouseman's obligation of delivery (AS 45.07.403 ) or duty of care (AS 45.07.204 ). A contrary provision is ineffective.
