Packing list definition

A packing list is a detailed statement of the contents of a package, which is used by the recipient to verify the contents. A packing list typically includes a description, quantity, and weight for each item in a package. It does not include the prices of the items being delivered. It is prepared by the seller, which includes it in the package or attaches it to the outside of the package in an adhesive pouch.

A packing list is also known as a packing slip.
