Subsequent Delivery

What does Subsequent Delivery mean?

A subsequent delivery is an additional delivery of goods to meet demand or a previous defective delivery. In logistics, it becomes necessary when an order cannot be fulfilled with just one delivery due to the lack of available stock. If a product was delivered defective the first time, the customer can claim his right to a faultless delivery from the seller.

Adversely, the subsequent deliveries usually cause a lot of work, as they run alongside the normal shipping process. They can also lead to customer dissatisfaction.
