外贸运输英语:确定发货时间、选择运输方式

贸易进行到交货阶段,沟通好货物运输中的种种问题至关重要。运输方式有哪些?发货时间、取货时间如何协商?一起来看看吧!

确定发货时间

发货时间会影响商品投入市场的契机,又受制于运输能力等客观条件的限制。买卖双方需要考虑市场需求和装运能力等多方面客观情况,协商确定发货时间。

make delivery 交货,shipment 装运, workload 工作量,promptly 立即地

I'm calling to ask how long it usually takes you to make delivery.

我打电话是想问一下你们通常多久可以交货。

Goods are generally delivered within two months after receipt of the L/C.

货物一般在我们收到信用证后两个月内交付。

We hope the shipment could be made before November, so that they are just in time for Christmas sales.

我们希望货物能在11月前装运,以便能赶上圣诞节的销售。

You know our factory has heavy workload. There are a lot of orders ahead of you. The earliest shipment we can make is in December.

你知道我们工厂的工作量很大,你前面还有很多订单。我们最早能在12月份装运。

选择运输方式

在国际贸易中海运和空运是比较常见的两种运输形式。海运更加经济,但耗时相对更长。空运速度很快,但同时也更加昂贵。

ship by air 空运,ship by sea 海运,part shipment 分批装运,shipping space 舱位,direct vessel 直达船只

—Could you please ship the goods by air?

能不能空运这批货物?

—Airfreight costs more and will affect your retail price.

空运成本更高,而且会影响你的零售价。

—How are you going to ship the goods?

你们打算怎样装运货物?

—We usually send that kind of quantity in part shipments. It is very difficult to book so much shipping space on the same ship. We can't ship the goods all at once.

这种数量我们通常分批装运。在同一艘船上订这么多舱位是很困难的。我们不能一次装运所有的货物。

跟进物流进度

货物按照约定发出之后,买卖双方也应该将物流进度同步沟通,提醒转运、到货等关键环节,确保货物顺利送达。

port 港口,unload 卸货,warehouse 仓库,transship 转运

I am phoning to inform you that the goods have arrived at your port and will be unloaded this afternoon.

我打电话是想通知你货物已经到达你的港口,今天下午就可以卸货了。

You should receive them at your warehouse tomorrow afternoon, if everything goes well.

如果一切顺利的话,你应该明天下午到仓库取货。

The goods are being transshipped to London via Shanghai.

货物正在经由上海转运到伦敦。
