What are some possible alternative counter offers to this offer?

A manufacturing company requires a minimum order of $5,000 at cost, offers terms of 3/10, net 30, and does not provide transportation costs. Transportation costs may be estimated at approximately $4.50 per dozen garments. There is a rumor, however, that there may be a trucking strike at the manufacturing company by independent truck lines. The manufacturing comapny is willing to participate in a cooperative advertising program. This Los Angeles firm assures the merchandise will be in stock and available for reorder.

One possible counteroffer is to change the terms of the date of delivery. A counteroffer constitutes a change in any of the terms of a preliminary contractual agreement. A change to the delivery date for a date that precedes the speculated date of strike would constitute a counteroffer.
