a shipment

A "shipment" is a collection of stuff which is being delivered somewhere. It's similar to a "delivery", but usually a "shipment" is:

  • big
  • 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")
