Request Letter for Urgent Delivery

If you are working on a project and you need the required material to complete your project on an urgent basis, the request letter for urgent delivery is written.

The letter is a formal document and it should not be overcrowded with unnecessary details. Start the letter with the problem that you are facing due to unavailability of the needed material. This will make the supplier feel that how critical this matter is.

The main purpose of writing this letter is to accelerate the process of shipment of the material. You can ask the supplier of the material to ship your order on a priority basis. If the urgent delivery charges more, ask the supplier that you will pay it.

The list of material and unit price of each item should be described in the letter in detail. Although the long details are not required to be added to this formal letter, the detail of the material needed should be added comprehensively.

End the letter by requesting the supplier again for shipping the material urgently. Mention the date for which you need the items to be delivered if necessary

Here is a sample letter for urgent delivery that will enable you to write a request letter for your own business.


We requested you to deliver the material by 26th of this month. Unexpectedly, the project that we are working with is proceeding very quickly. We want to avoid the additional cost that we may face if we will run out of the resources and the material.

Moreover, I will have to be answerable to the client if I will not be able to submit the project on time. Therefore, I would like to request you to deliver that requested material as early as possible.

We assure you that you will be paid the additional fee for urgent delivery. Kindly write me back to contact me on my personal number to let me know if you can do this for me and save me from the worst consequences. Thank you so much for your consideration.
