Re: Our Order No. ...
We have duly received the documents and took the consignment of goods
delivered under Contract No.........
We are much obliged to you for the prompt execution of our order. Everything appears to be correct and in good condition except the tubes which arrived damaged.
On receiving the goods in ... our experts examined them and came to the conclusion that the damage had occurred due to insufficient packing.
To prove our statement we attach a Report of our experts showing the breakage and photos of the damaged tubes.
As we need the tubes urgently, we have to ask you to arrange for the dispatch of replacements at once.
We look forward to your dealing with this question without delay.

With reference to your letter No.... dated ... we wish to give some clarifications about the delay in discharge of the m/v ... .
We appreciate your concern but the delay was entirely due to reasons beyond our control and we cannot be held responsible for it.
The delay was caused by the defective shipboard handling gear both in No. 1 and No. 2 hatches.
Furthermore the situation was aggravated by the concentration of heavy lifts in these two hatches. Due to the nature of some packages and the low draught of the vessel we had to rent a floating crane to speed up the discharge from these hatches.
Besides in spite of our repeated requests the shipping documents for the cargo came late and we could not start the discharge immediately upon the vessel's berthing.
We assure you that we have done all we could to discharge the vessel in time and hope that you will find our explanation satisfactory.

We have to inform you that on receiving your notification of the vessel's arrival the Port authorities as well as our Corporation took all necessary measures to discharge the vessel without delay, i. e. the loading trucks and shipping facilities were made available.
You will remember that it was agreed that you would make the vessel ready for berthing at 14.00 on 22nd January 20... .
But in spite of all the above mentioned arrangements the vessel's authorities refused to berth because of weather conditions.
This delay is causing us great inconvenience as both the trucks and the shipping facilities were made available only for one day.
It is with great regret that we have to inform you that we cannot be responsible for any further delays and difficulties which may arise in discharging the vessel.
May we also point out that we hold you responsible for all expenses incurred by our Corporation.
We hope you will give this matter your immediate attention.
i Yours faithfully,
