A packing slip is a document that contains a list of the items that you include in a package. It typically contains the addresses of both seller and receiver, the sales order number, a package number, and other details like order quantity and ship quantity. When the package arrives, the receiver can make sure that they have received the right items by checking the package contents against the packing slip.
Customers can quickly identify missing items by cross-checking the received items against the packing slip.
Both sellers and receivers are well-informed of what's inside the package, which is especially important for large orders with multiple shipments.
When shipping labels get damaged or packages arrive without one, packing slips act as an instant reference for confirmation and bookkeeping.
A packing slip is created for the benefit of the receiver, while a shipping label is created for the transporter. Also, packing slips don't necessarily include shipping information like the carrier or the service type.
