What is a Delivery Note?

Definition: A document that accompanies a goods shipment and lists details about the goods delivered.

A delivery note explains what the contents of a package are.

If some goods that were ordered are not enclosed (due to lack of stock, unavailability, etc.) they will also be listed on the delivery note. This way the recipient will have an overview of what they ordered and what has actually been sent to them.

Further information

Often, a delivery note doesn't include prices. Usually, each individual product is listed by its product number.

A delivery note may also include the address and banking info.
