The Industry Standard

Every business has its own language, lexicon, and lingo, and international
trade is no exception. Consider: ad valorem, C-TPAT, most-favored
nation, FAST, antidumping, NAFTA, countertrade, FOB, ocean bill of
lading, 10+2 Rule, letter of credit, FTZ, IMF, and chaebol. International
trade is a business in which “I think I know” isn’t good enough. What
you don’t know can really hurt you.

The World Trade Press Dictionary of International Trade is the most
respected and largest-selling trade reference in the world. It is used by
importers, exporters, bankers, shippers, logistics professionals, attorneys,
economists, and government officials in more than 100 countries.
