Delivery delay

What is Delivery delay?

Delivery delay is a situation of debtor's default that occurs when a supplier fails to meet a firmly agreed delivery date. In this case, the buyer can claim damages. If no fixed delivery date has been agreed, the buyer must first request a new delivery date from the trader. In this case, a delay in delivery occurs if a third date has also passed unsuccessfully. The buyer then has the option to refuse acceptance. In addition, he may charge the supplier for any additional costs incurred by him as a result of the delay in delivery. A reminder is not necessary in this context.
