The concepts and language associated with international trade can, at times, be quite complex and difficult to understand. And insufficient knowledge can compound the already present risks to an even higher level.
What is DA/DP? What are incoterms? What is a Letter of Credit? How is a Charter Party BL different from a regular Bill of Lading? This book tries to cover these basics, and more such, in a simple and easy to understand manner, with illustrations and process flows.
Starting from explaining the various risks in an international trade transaction, the book goes on to cover documentation, incoterms, and the different types of trade transactions – Collections, Open Account and Letters of Credits.
In the chapter devoted to Letters of Credits, the author uses real-life illustrations and a sample LC to explain the roles of the various parties, and the processes associated with issuance and settlement of a Letter of Credit. The various clauses and their importance are explained in a very lucid manner.
Apart from these, the book also covers Bank Guarantees, trade finance products available for exporters and importers in India, and also explains how pricing is derived for trade transactions.
A few articles at the end on Charter Party Bill of Lading, Marine Cargo Insurance and Trade Credits throw additional light on the said topics.
The author has drawn on his experience as a senior trade practitioner at various banks in India, to deliver a very crisp and clear explanation of the underlying concepts of trade transactions. The simple language and the real-life illustrations make this an essential guide to anyone who wishes to understand the world of International Trade, a little better.
