If you Google the word “Jargon” you will see it described as “special words or expressions used by a profession or group that are difficult for others to understand.”
The Shipping and Freight industry also has its own jargon, oh yes, and a lot of it usually flummoxes many people in the industry.. I was thoroughly confused with all these when I started out in the industry..
Starting this week (Week 9 of 2015), I will be explaining the various jargon that is used in day to day shipping work..
This may also include abbreviations commonly used but which may not be fully understood..
I have put up a widget on the sidebar titled SHIPPING JARGON that will show the Jargon for the week and every Sunday you will see a new jargon..
Please look at the side bar for this week’s jargon..
I have also included a link under the Topics menu in the main menu bar..
