    Default I did/made 8 deliveries in one trip.

    1) I did/made 8 deliveries in one trip.
    2) I did/made 8 deliveries in that particular trip.
    3) I need to make 3 trips in order to finish off all these deliveries.

    Do I say did or make a trip? Are the sentences above correct? Please advise.

    Default Re: I did/made 8 deliveries in one trip.

    In this context, I would use "make/made" with both "deliveries" and "trip(s)".

    I made eight deliveries in one trip.
    I need to make three more trips to finish all these deliveries.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
