Anonymous:Please proceed or process shipment ?
Mister MicawberProceed with or Process. Process is the usual choice.Hi Mr. Micawber,
I also confused with these two words. How to use and what is the difference ?
I alway heard people says : Please proceed the shipment. or Please proceed accordingly. Seems "proceed" is more common than "process" ?
Thanks to advise

Please proceed accordingly.-- this is OK, but does not mean 'process'.
Proceed (intransitive)-- follow a certain course
Process (tranistive)-- subject to a treatment, with the aim of readying for some purpose
Mister MicawberPlease proceed the shipment-- this is incorrect English, ZoeHi Mr. Micawber,
Thanks for your explanation.
e.g. Is this correct to say : The vendor has confirmed the ocean freight, please process the shipment accordingly.
