Job Description for Shipping Clerk

A shipping clerk is part of a company's distribution team and is the individual who first interacts with merchandise that reaches a store. The shipping clerk helps direct truck drivers to the shipping bays of a store. After the truck is parked, an invoice must usually be signed by the shipping clerk to verify receipt of the shipment; the invoice must also be consulted to determine if the entirety of the truck's contents should be unloaded or only a portion. If only a portion of the contents are to be unloaded, the shipping clerk must pass this information along to team members to ensure that only the right merchandise is removed. The shipping clerk then works with team members to unpack the truck and move the new inventory into an initial storage space.
