    Is it necessary to mention type of truck? If not "Please arrange for delivery of the goods to our home address tomorrow morning" would be more natural.

    Thank your for your help. Yes, we need to mention type of truck in the sentence.
    In this case, I'm trying to amend the sentence.
    "Please arrange the normal truck for delivery of the goods to our home address tomorrow morning"
    Thanks.

    not a teacher

    If you are referring to a particular truck that has made these deliveries before, then "the usual truck" is probably more natural.

    "Please arrange for the usual truck to deliver the goods to our home address tomorrow morning".
