Sub.: Delay in delivery

Dear Mr. ..................,

We regret to inform you that we are very disappointed in your service lately. We have been in a business relationship over .... years now.

We have been noticing that the deliveries received from you are generally beyond the delivery dates as agreed under the purchase orders.

This is not only affecting us financially, but also resulting in customer dissatisfaction due to delay in servicing them or non-availability of goods on time.

We hope that you will take our concern seriously and improve the delivery performance in the coming days. Needless to say, the continuity in late deliveries in the future will strain our business relationship and may result in termination.

Looking forward to seeing some improvement in our next deliveries.

Yours faithfully,
