What is a shipper?

Basically, a person who contracts with a carrier for the carriage of goods by sea. 

The legal definition, used in the IMSBC Code, is: “Any person by whom or in whose name, or on whose behalf, a contract of carriage of goods by sea has been concluded with a carrier, or any person by whom or in whose name, or on whose behalf the goods are actually delivered to the carrier in relation to the contract of carriage by sea.”

Is the shipper always the seller or exporter of the goods?

What security does a bank involved in a letter of credit transaction have in return for the sum advanced?
