In a Bill to – Ship to transaction, the transporter would be at the supplier’s location and it can personally collect the invoice and e way bill from the supplier. As far as invoice and e way bill of the buyer in the name of consignee (ship to Party) is concerned it should be handed over to the transporter. Now it would have a lot of practical challenges and implementation issues. A possible solution is the buyer instead of sending the original Tax invoice may obtain an Invoice Reference Number from the common portal in Form GST INV-1 and communicate the Invoice Reference Number along with E way bill number to the transporter. It will be suffice if the transporter carry Invoice and e way bill of the supplier and Invoice Reference number and e way bill number of the buyer in the name of the consignee.
