    Welcome to the forum, mydesire.

    Please try to use capital letters appropriately in your posts:

    This is far too big a topic to cover in one post. We can deal with more specific questions.
    "i If we plan for a shipment, the goods should have been ready in the first week of f February, but we will try to get them ready by the 3rd week of j January.
    The sentence does not make sense. If we are to correct it, we need to know:

    For what date was the shipment originally planned?
    Is there a new date for shipment?
