Significance of message types
What exactly is the significance of message types? For example, what exactly would be the difference between the idoc delvry 03 with message type 'desadv' and delvry03 with message type 'shpcon'?

Message types relate to the structure of the data called an IDOC . Message types provide the format of the data, which can be exchanged between SAP and non-SAP systems.
DESADV ---> Delivery: Shipping Notification " Notification SHPCON ---> Delivery: Shipping Confirmation " Confirmation
