    - It's not a sentence. All you have is a subject, or topic.
    - I assume that 'shipments made for the day' means 'all shipments which occurred on that day'.
    - shipments.

    The phrase nominates shipments; it then restricts the shipments to those which were i) made that day and ii) which were worth more than $15,000.
    However, since it's not a sentence, it doesn't say anything about this subject.
