What do we call a person who wants to ship his or her car from one place to another?

I know the person who does it is a trucker or shipper, but I don't know what to call that person who wants to ship his car.

  • Is this a good question? Do you have some reason, or even research, to think that someone wishing to ship a vehicle would be named differently from someone wish to ship some other bulky item?

You could say client or customer; for example: the client who is shipping his car to Maryland.

  • I worked with IT in logistics, and never heard any other terms for our customers.
