地道美语听力练习:货物在海上离奇失踪

Una: Get on the horn and find out where our cargo is.

Jackson: I’ve been trying. Last week, I finally reached someone at the transport company and all they would tell me was that due to unforeseen circumstances, there will be a delay in delivery.

Una: Didn’t they give you any details?

Jackson: None at all. When I called again two days later, I spoke with someone else who said there may have been a mishap in transit, such as a truck breakdown or accident.

Una: But our cargo is being shipped by sea.

Jackson: That’s what I told her. She said the delay could be due to something as simple as bad weather and that our cargo probably hasn’t been captured for ransom or lost at sea.

Una: Captured for ransom?! Lost at sea?!

Jackson: She said that probably hasn’t happened. When I called again yesterday, I was told the cargo had arrived at the port, but that there’s a problem.

Una: What kind of problem?

Jackson: The person I spoke to didn’t know, but thought that it could be a delay in customs clearance or even a loss of refrigeration.

Una: A loss of refrigeration?! That would be disastrous.

Jackson: I know, but then again, who thought transporting Alaska snow to California was a good idea?

Una: Our wonderful director, remember?
