Formally dock receipt on an international shipment using ocean freight is a document issued by a direct ocean freight carrier to acknowledge receipt of ocean freight shipment at the carrier's shipping terminal. For LCL ocean freight shipments carrier's dock receipt also verifies w/m of cargo received by the shipping terminal. 

However, in respect of dealing with international shipping companies (freight forwarders or NVOCC) the Dock Receipt is a shipping document given to the shipper for a purpose of allowing his/her ocean freight shipment to be delivered to a direct carrier's pier or shipping terminal. When the delivery is completed, the dock receipt is surrendered to the shipping terminal. W/M information will be verified by the shipping terminal and Ocean freight Bill of Lading will be issued by the ocean freight carrier based on the verified information in the Dock Receipt.

Typically, with certain exceptions (for example, when deliver a motor vehicle to a pier without a power of attorney given to the delivery person) shipper does not have to be physically present when submitting cargo to the international shipment. Any authorized by the shipper person or company may deliver ocean freight to the shipping terminal on shipper's behalf. Shipper may consider the Dock Receipt a "ticket for the international ocean freight shipment".  

The Dock Receipt on an international ocean freight shipment can be delivered to the shipper in different ways: via fax or e-mail, with a tracker when shipping FCL etc.
