German term or phrase: durch schriftliche Mitteilung
Dear colleagues! I have a special question: I know that schriftliche Mitteilung normally means "notice in writing". However, in the sentence below I have the problem that Kündigungsfrist also means "term of notice". Is there also another translation for "by schriftliche Mitteilung" (to avoid two times "notice")? Thanks a lot in advance!

Das Unternehmen und der Spediteur sind beide berechtigt, diesen Vertrag ohne Angabe von Gründen durch schriftliche Mitteilung unter Wahrung einer Kündigungsfrist von 60 Tagen, jeweils zum Monatsletzten zu kündigen.

You could use "notification/notice in writing" for "schriftliche Mitteilung" and use "cancellation period" for "Kündigungsfrist" to avoid using "notice" twice.
