When you speak good business English, you can enjoy these advantages when dealing with other import/export managers:

  • Understand what all the jargon means, as well as the abbreviations, so that you use terminology correctly.
  • Make sure that you don’t cost your company money, by mis-communicating your requirements properly.
  • Most import/export companies communicate in English across Europe – you will be on a par or even better than others.
  • Understand the difference between FOB, CIF and CIP (and other confusing terms)
