    Please process the shipment
    Shipment is the goods or the process of transporting the goods.
    I think it is meant to be 'process the order'. It is only after the order is processed that the goods/shipment is sent, no?

    In this case, shipment refers to movement of goods from one country to another country, This involves cetain formalities like inspection, LC, filing of bill of lading etc.This takes some time before actual shipment takes place.

    Please proceed with the shipment.
    Shipment in this case means the process of transporting the goods.
