A document that is typically signed by the receiver of a shipment to indicate that they have in fact received the item being shipped and have taken possession of it. Most businesses that transport valuable items will require the completion of a signed delivery receipt to ensure the goods were actually received by the intended recipient. The document also allows the recipient to certify that the goods were received in good order or that the goods were received damaged. Delivery receipts almost always contain a receiver signature line.
