A "shipment" is a collection of stuff which is being delivered somewhere. It's similar to a "delivery", but usually a "shipment" is:
- from somewhere far away (or at least out of town)
- for business use
A "delivery", on the other hand, can be a package that someone sent you, or even some food that's being delivered to you from a nearby restaurant.
Here are things you can do with a shipment:
make a shipment
receive a shipment
await a shipment
A shipment can also "arrive".
Shipments usually contain things like:
weapons (or "arms")
