Exporting large volumes or high value goods? A freight forwarder will save you time and money. By using any combination of road, sea, air and/or rail, businesses can ensure their products reach the other side safely and in good time.

This workshop will cover:

  • What services are offered by freight forwarders and how do you select the best one for you
  • How to get started with shipping and what to do next
  • Export documentation and what they represent
  • Understanding International Commercial Terms (Incoterms)
  • HMRC and the importance of accuracy
  • Your logistical considerations
  • The dos and don’ts of shipping, with a real-life case study example

If any of this will be useful to you, come and see us!
