Whereas, I would never use B. Ever. However, after DI's message
suggesting the implied difference, the usage of "of" makes sense:

"for this shipment": about the transport of the shipment
"of this shipment": about the contents of the shipment

Also, I would always say, "...view THE details...." I'm a big stickler
for the small stuff.
