consignment note

Definition

A shipping agreement between the consignor of a shipment and the carrier of the shipment, which records the receipt of goods for shipment to a specified destination. The consignment note also specifies the consignee of the shipment and the fee for shipment, but unlike a bill of lading, is not a document of title. Also called a waybill.
