English term or phrase: backorder
Definition from Bridgefield Group:
A current or past due customer order (or line item) that cannot be shipped due to lack of inventory availability. Customer agreements govern how backorders are handled (ship when available, ship whole order only, cancel, etc.).

Example sentence(s):
  • Backorders can come as the result of entirely to many different factors all of which equally frustrating and detrimental to a company’s relationship with their customers and also to the company’s internal functions. Golfmkv
  • We have compared the operating regimes by observing a set of performance measures such as the average inventory levels, the average backorder size, the average backorder levels, the probability of backorder and the average number of set-ups. Ingenta Connect
  • It's still true that backorders take a serious toll on customer goodwill and bottom-line results. Multichannel Merchant
