Student or Learner
I'd like you to check whether the sentence below is grammatically correct and if it is awkward to give a suggestion for rewriting it .
"Every time you send us the papers we receive it after the truck had already passed the border."
Thank you for your help
Thanks for the answer Clark ,
The situation is that we have business partners who keep sending us the commercial papers we need in the time when it's too late for us. The truck with the ware connected with those papers is already on its way toward our destination and we're informing them on that problem.
I hope the sentence makes sense for you now . I was in doubt actually about whether to use the present perfect or past perfect tense. Past perfect sounded well to me.( simple past tense too but less so :) ) . Thanks for clearing my doubt.
