International Logistics Seminar
Full-Day Session — 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Certificate Issued Upon Completion.
You thought reaching agreement on an international sales contract was hard. But now you have to move the goods from one country to another before you get paid. And you have to do it within the terms of the sales agreement and without incurring a lot of unexpected expenses.
This seminar is the perfect overview of the transportation process—whether you're shipping by ocean or air. Learn the steps you need to follow to move your products affordably, securely and within budget.
If you take this seminar, you will learn:
- The role of forwarders and customs brokers in an international shipment.
- Best practices for securely and affordably transporting your products.
- The importance of tariff classification.
- How to select and negotiate with ocean and/or air carriers for your shipments.
- The rules of the road (the standard terms of carriage).
- How to protect your company's assets by choosing the proper insurance.
Come to this one-day seminar armed with your questions. Small class sizes and a knowledgeable teacher allow for a great interaction between attendees and the instructor. All attendees take home a copy of the Managing Forwarders, Brokers & Carriers reference book.
