Is it possible to effect shipment in April?
Are you able to deliver within one month afterreceiving the order?
Is it possible for you to make direct shipment to London from Guangzhou in March?
How about making Hong Kong the port of shipment instead of Shantou?
Could you ship the goods all at once?
Please ship the goods in one lot in May.
We can't accept your demand for direct shipment.
You know, we need to get the goods ready, make out the documents and book shipping space.All these take time.
I suggest we effect shipment in three equal lots from May.
I suggest we deliver the goods over three months-May, June and July.
I suggest partial shipment be allowed.
I propose multimodal transport.
I propose combined transport.I'm quite satisfied with the leather shoes you produce inGuangzhou. Is it possible for you to make direct shipment to London from Guangzhou inMarch?
I'm afraid not. There is only one direct liner from Guangzhou to Europe every two months. Thenext chanceis a Singapore bound steam ship in May.
But we are in urgent need of the shoes. Can we make trans-shipment through Singapore?
There are many thin s that could go wrong.
If there's no alternative, we'll have to send a ship to Guangzhou.
I propose multimodal transport. The goods can be carried first by rail to Yantai and then bysea to London.
The combined transport may cause a delay in shipment or even lose the goods completely.Besides, the formalities are too complicated.
The facilities for shipping goods to European countries have changed a lot in the last few years.As to formalities, we'll handle them at our end.
All right. You persuaded me.
