    Default Purchase Order

    Could you please place the purchase order to the factories for these cargoes, include Sun Cheong. As per Nancy’s instruction we need send them the PO as normal procedure. Even though their company was closed / shut down.

    Please note that "cargo" is not normally a count noun. Indeed, it is itself plural.

    Perhaps:
    Please place the purchase order to the factory for the shipment, and include Sun Cheong. As per Nancy’s instructions we need to send them the PO as per normal procedure. That is even though their company has shut down.
    How do you buy something from a company that no longer exists?

    (As usual, additional context would have been helpful.)
