Course Overview

Delivery of goods – what are your obligations and responsibilities?

Incoterms are international definitions of delivery terms. This workshop begins by looking at why they exist. It then introduces you to the four categories: E, F, C and D – and the differences between them.

How to minimise potential payment delays for clients

For importers, prompt payment is part of good customer care. This session will look at avoiding delays, currency, security, Bills of Exchange, Letters of Credit, Outward Bills and Expedited Collections.

Avoid practical problems, by selecting the correct freight forwarder

Successful importers understand the significance of choosing the correct freight forwarder for the job. This seminar highlights eleven factors you must consider when appointing a freight forwarder.

Ensure that all customs requirements are complied with correctly
