Carriage charges can be one of the most commonly disputed items between supplier and purchaser. If you receive goods which include a charge for delivery that you did not expect, then contact the supplier as soon as possible to query it.

Dear [contact name],
We have received your invoice no: 123456 in the amount of [amount]. However we were surprised to see included a carriage charge of [amount].
On your quotation (no: [number]) there was no mention of an extra cost for delivery, and as our original purchase order specifically asked for a quote ‘carriage paid’ we are entitled to assume that the final amount in that quote included the delivery cost.
Please could you send us a credit note for the full amount of the carriage.
