We have not yet received the items ordered / We are yet to receive the items for the order
I would say "ordered" rather than "for the order" (if anything, "in the order" would be better, but not as good as "ordered"). Otherwise, either wording is fine to my ear.
In ordinary speech we'd more likely say 'have not yet received'. The expression 'are yet to receive' is characteristic of business letters. But in a business letter, the two sound equally good. And cropje_jnr is also right about 'ordered'.
Separate names with a comma.
