Bon de livraison/bordereau de reception


France English

I have to translate , "Reçu 114 colis . Manque 6 colis par rapport au bordereau de reception annoncé". (these are remarks are written on the international consignment note) I think bordereau de reception should be translated as delivery order? It does not seem to be the same as Bon de reception which would be delivery note.
Thanks in advance for any help.
