Bus/Financial - Law (general)
Spanish term or phrase: nuestro principal (negocios/aduanas)
Extractos de la "letra chica" de un documento de aduanas (de España si no me equivoco):


1.
"
Todos nuestros negocios (siempre que no se actúa por cuenta de nuestro principal) se regulan de acuerdo con las condiciones FETEIA (...).
"

2.
"
El flete se factura solo como agente en nombre y por cuenta de nuestro principal.
"


No acabo de entender qué se quiera decir con la frase "nuestro principal".

Ayudáis?

Gracias
