packing slip
Explanation:
Literalmente, "packing slip" es una lista de empaque; a su vez, un remito es similar a una factura, sólo que no tiene precios, pero detalla lo que se entrega (cosa que el papel de un envío por courier no hace). Lo que pasa es que se usa los términos (tanto remito como packing slip) en un sentido muy amplio.
El papel que viene con los envíos se llama packing slip; justamente porque es una "tira" que viene por fuera del embalaje (o del sobre, si son papeles).
Una freight bill es una guía de carga; se puede tener una carga aérea, por ejemplo, que viene con la guía (airway bill), y la caja en sí tiene pegado un "packing slip".

Para agregar a la confusión reinante:

When you receive your shipment, please sign, date and return the packing slip to Robin. www.mrl.ucsb.edu/mrl/internalinfo/purchasing.html

I remit


Explanation:
'Remito' is the first person singular of the verb 'remitir', meaning to remit, as in payment, etc. 'Remesa' is akin to 'remittance', which is the actual payment sent/received.

Dear Carlos:


Explanation:
Last time I had to use this word I had to render it in Spanish, and know what? The client had it 'remito' within the original text in English. I have checked several dictionaries, with no luck. Remitos seem not to exist in English speaking commerce. However, hold on a while, maybe somebody in our community has more info than I do.
Good luck!

return receipt


Explanation:
Well, I don't normally send any replies after so many have been sent, but if this is what the explanation says, then it is a "return receipt" which in Spanish is "acuse de recibo". ¿Tengo la razón on no?

Uds. me dirán... yo no más digo.

Explanation:
En castellano es "acuse de recibo", y se utiliza generalmente para el envío de documentación (cartas documento, notificaciones, etc.).

Algún colega sabe si se aplica a algún otro tipo de envío? Por ejemplo de paquetes, como es el caso de la pregunta?

Explanation:
given all the prior explanations, why not simply call it "receipt"? A receipt acknowledges that something was delivered or paid....
