Trade Terms booklet published!

International Trade Matters is pleased to announce the publication of the Import/Export Trade Terms Jargon Buster booklet

The guide has been assembled by our specialists to provide an at-a-glance guide to over 300 trade terms that you will encounter within international business. It’s a quick reference guide to industry expressions and acronyms, including the latest edition of Incoterms® (Incoterms® 2020)

Managing Director, Linda Middleton-Jones explained:

“Key words in the handy-to-use document will help companies to understand some of the acronyms used in trade and commerce, and especially with the emphasis on ‘internationalisation’ of UK post-Brexit.”

“There are enormous opportunities in the global market place – and especially the ‘internationalisation’ of services. We are entering a brave new world from January 31st and (ITM) is not just focussing on delivering customs and compliance, but a full range of other services that we offer South West and British companies.”

International Trade Matters Ltd delivers specialist guidance on compliance, standards, market research, export strategies, PR, marketing, and media support, and exit readiness, working closely with the Chambers of Commerce and Institute of Export.
