Clauses is the ability to define text that you want to appear on documents that isn't already there by default.
You can add clause text to your various shipping documents by assigning a clause to your shipment record. You can standardize this clause text by creating special clause records that contain the text.
When you or your users create shipment records, you can assign the complete text by picking the clause record by name and then selecting it to appear on the available documents needed for that shipment.
