Managing Forwarders, Brokers and Carriers In Your International Supply Chain
By George Thompson & Catherine J. Petersen
If your company is engaged in international trade—be it importing, exporting or some of both—you need to move the goods from the seller to the buyer. How you move those goods and who you use to physically transport them can make a huge difference in whether you make or lose money in the transaction.
Managing Forwarders, Brokers and Carriers In Your International Supply Chain describes the key elements of the international supply chain and the various people who affect the pick-up and delivery of goods from the point of origin to the place of final delivery. It also explains the underlying legal and regulatory authority that allows these people to act on behalf of the buyer and/or seller.
Once you know who the players in your international shipment are, the book will help you identify the important factors in selecting and then managing third-party (3PL) or fourth-party (4PL) logistics firms that act as carriers, freight forwarders and customs brokers in the international supply chain. You will gain insights into international packaging, security, air and ocean transportation, the law and the documentation that supports the movement of your goods.
Whether you’re a novice or a seasoned professional, Managing Forwarders, Brokers and Carriers In Your International Supply Chain gives you understandable, real-world knowledge that you can use to successfully do your job and avoid the kind of late deliveries, bungled payments, and expensive fines and penalties that have afflicted too many of your peers.
