Explanation:
"Afroep orders", and I assume that this is what the other terms refer to, are blanket or scheduled orders in English. Sometimes (goods) 'on call' is used, too.

delivery instructions / delivery documents


Explanation:
"afroep" is a typical "forward contract" feature, where a customer says, I order so and so many items "op afroep". The delivery is effected by forwarding delivery notices or documents, which contain the delivery instructions.

delivery order instructions / delivery order documents


Explanation:
I think an "afroepcontract" is a "delivery order contract", or a "call-off contract", so I would tend to agree with Alexander and call them something like "delivery order instructions / delivery order documents".

Some definitions:

(1) "Delivery order (contract)" Contract for SUPPLIES that does not procure or specify a firm quantity of SUPPLIES (other than a minimum or maximum quantity) and that provides for the issuance of orders for the delivery of SUPPLIES during the period of the contract. (www.acquisition.gov)

(2) "Task order (contract)": Contract for SERVICES that does not procure or specify a firm quantity of SERVICES (other than a minimum or maximum quantity) and that provides for the issuance of orders for the performance of tasks during the period of the contract. (www.acquisition.gov)

(3) "Delivery order (contract)": Supply contract that specifies a minimum and maximum quantity during the contract period but not a schedule of delivery. Supplies are made as and when the buyer issues orders. (www.businessdictionary.com)

(4) "Call-off contract" = Supply contract that specifies a minimum and maximum quantity during the contract period but not a schedule of delivery. Supplies are made as and when the buyer issues orders. A call-off contract is used for the supply of a specific quantity (a minimum and maximum range can be given) of goods or services over a given time period, subject to the prices, specifications and terms and conditions agreed. Delivery will be made either to a delivery schedule built into the call-off contract, or more usually by separate "call-off" orders placed against the contract. In essence, a call-off contract is the same as a FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT except that it is a legally binding contract with the supplier. (http://www.canterbury.gov.uk)
