What does Receiving mean?

Receiving is the process of accepting and recording the delivery of goods into a warehouse or distribution center. The receiving process involves checking the shipment for accuracy, completeness, and condition, and ensuring that the received goods match the corresponding documentation, such as the purchase order or bill of lading. The goods are then marked as received and stored in the appropriate location in the warehouse or distribution center.
