When you purchase/sell goods you have to indicate the physical or logical movement of materials which leads to a change in stock levels or results in the consumption of the material. For example, you can specify whether the goods movement is from purchase order to warehouse or from sales order to shipping point.

Did you look in SAP Help? Here it is:

A classification key indicating the type of material movement (for example, goods receipt, goods issue, physical stock transfer).

The movement type enables the system to find predefined posting rules determining how the accounts of the financial accounting system (stock and consumption accounts) are to be posted and how the stock fields in the material master record are to be updated.
