Hi. If a customer bought and paid for 200 items of clothing and the company wants to send him 100 tomorrow and the other 100 next friday what do you call the fact that 100 will be sent tomorrow? Can I call it advanced delivery or goods delivered in advance? Or is there another term?

    I wouldn't call it "advanced;" I would call it a "partial shipment." "Advanced" (or "advance") delivery sounds to me as if the goods would be delivered before they were ordered!

    You could say that you are expediting a partial shipment/ partial fulfillment of the order.

    Expediting is a good word in this case because it suggests that you are going out of your way to do something special for the customer.
