As a potential exporter it is vital to understand the complex issues of trading internationally. Exporting is a process and needs planning with clear and focussed objectives. Those in the company who manage the movement of goods overseas need to be aware of their responsibilities. It’s not uncommon for administrators, or even managers, to have little or no formal training.
The fundamentals of export which are essential to anyone involved in shipping or export, are generally learnt by copying from a predecessor, trial and error or a bad experience. This course has been designed to meet this training requirement.
Over the course of the 2 days, you will learn what it takes to export your goods overseas through terminology, discussion and practical exercises. You should develop a basic understanding of how to process an export order, raise the correct documentation, Incoterms® 2010, and different methods of payment.
