    Question Pre-shipment advice or Shipment pre-advice

    I used to inform my customer the shipment details after shipment has gone, that is a "shipment advice" to my customer

    If I am going to inform my customer the shipment details before the shipment has gone. I am not sure which of the following "Pre-shipment advice" or "Shipment pre-advice" should be the correct email subject?

    Sorry for my unclear question. Please see the revised in red.

    It would be pre-shipment advice.

    Some companies give bids.

    Re: Pre-shipment advice or Shipment pre-advice

    If you're referring to giving the customer the details such as bill of lading number or truck number or information specific to an actual order, I would probably call it "Shipping Detail." Then preface the document with language such as "Following are the details for shipment of your P.O. number _________, which is scheduled to ship on __________."

    Oops, I read the original question wrong.

    That could also be a Packing List, a list of the items that actually went out.
