Delivery order

A delivery order is a document issued by a carrier or freight forwarder that authorises the release of goods to the consignee or recipient named in the document. The delivery order serves as proof of delivery of the goods and can be used as a document of title. It usually includes details such as the shipment details, the names and addresses of the sender and recipient, the description of the goods, and the terms and conditions of the delivery.
