What is a Dock Receipt?

A dock receipt is a document used in shipping to confirm the receipt of a shipment by a carrier at a specific location or port. Dock receipts typically include information such as the name and address of the shipper and consignee, a description of the cargo, the weight and volume of the shipment, and the date and time of receipt. Dock receipts are important documents in the shipping process, as they provide proof of receipt and help ensure that the cargo is properly accounted for and delivered to the correct destination.
