Why does a sea waybill not need to be issued in a set of originals like a bill of lading?

Because it is a non-negotiable document and is therefore less likely to be used for fraudulent purposes than a bill of lading. Only one original needs to travel with the goods. There will usually, however, be several copy documents.
