As per your query it is understood that you need information regarding the bill of landing. 

Received for shipment bill of lading–This bill is sent from agent /charterer to shipper. The endorsement of this bill ensures that the carrier has received goods but does not confirm it is onboard of the assigned vessel

Shipped B/L – This bill of lading is Issued when cargo is loaded on board. It binds the shipowner and the shipper directly

A clean bill of lading is one which states that the cargo has been loaded on board the ship in apparent good order and condition. Such a bill of lading will not bear a clause or notation which expressively declares a defective condition of goods and/or the packaging. The opposite term is a soiled bill of lading. It reflects that the goods were received by the carrier in anything but good condition.

Through B/L – This bill of lading is a legal document that allows for direct delivery of cargo from point A to point B. The bill allows transportation of goods both within domestic borders and through international shipment as it serves as a receipt of the cargo, a contract of carriage, and sometimes title for the products as well

Combined transport B/L – This bill gives information about cargo being transported in large containers by sea and land, i.e. through multi-model transport.

Dirty bill of lading: If the shipowner raises an objection about “the condition of the cargo is in good order”, he/she can include a clause thereby causing the bill of lading to be “claused or dirty” along with the remarks as per the finding of the cargo condition. E.g. torn packing, broken cargo, shortage in the quantity of the goods etc.
