    carry out at

    Hello.

    Deliveries are carried out at the warehouse's address in Russia.


    Please tell me whether this sentence is grammatically correct. Can I use the verb "carry out" here?

    Thank you.

    Re: carry out at

    The sentence is grammatically correct but logically improbable. To carry out is not a good choice of verbs. Do you mean the products are delivered to or from the warehouse?

    If you tell us more about what you're trying to say, using different words, perhaps we can give better guidance.

    Re: carry out at

    Goods are delivered to the warehouse.
    A supplier sends its goods to a buyer's warahouse in Russian.
    The delivery address should be indicated in the contract.

    What verb will be more appropriate here?

    Re: carry out at

    You've described the situation clearly but I'm still not clear on what else you need to say. Do you need to indicate that the supplier will deliver its goods to the delivery address, in Russia, contained in the contract?

    Deliveries will be made to the buyer's warehouse in Russia.

    Yes, exactly! Thank you for your efforts and sorry my poor English!

    Re: carry out at

    Are you writing an order in which you need to specify the address? I'm sorry, I've lost track of what you're trying to accomplish.

    Re: carry out at

    It is a contract in which the delivery address should be mentioned.
    I want to say that goods (=deliveries) should be shipped (deliveried) to the warehouse in Russia.
    Barb_D has cought the meaning right.

    Re: carry out at

    It sounds like you've figured it out then. Two corrections: 1) the simple past of the verb to deliver is "delivered". 2) The simple past of to catch is "caught."

    Re: carry out at

    If that's the case, then "All good purchased under this contract shall be delivered to the buyer's warehouse in Russia at [give the full address] [and specify who will be responsible for the shipping costs]." But you need a lawyer, not English geeks to help with things like this. We may forget to say something important and cost you money.
