Introduction to Exporting

This course provides a sound introduction to the role of export, giving delegates an overall picture of how the many elements of international trade fit together. Delegates get hands-on experience of some of the administration involved in getting an export consignment ready for the journey, and learn the best ways to be sure of getting paid.

This course gives newcomers to International Trade a clear insight into basic procedures, good practice and the essential documents which they are likely to meet. Of equal importance is a discussion of the main pitfalls of non-compliance and how each of the elements examined contributes to prompt and profitable payment for the company.
