Ms Sempre claims that they delivered/have delivered 1 chafing dish and 2 highball tumblers to your office among the samples, but they were not returned from/by your office.

1. Can either verb be used? If so, is there any difference in meaning?
2. It should be 'by', I think.

Thanks.

1. If the whole matter is in the past, use the simple past ("delivered") and "were not returned". If the issue is ongoing & has continued into the present use the present perfect "have delivered" and "have not been returned".
2. By you or from your office.
