This compact course runs from 09h00 to 16h00 and deals with the mechanics of Export trade, covering risks, costs and tasks.
The course addresses the responsibility the Exporter and their service providers to the points of Incoterms handover and the entitlement of payments.
What are the main concerns of the exporter and what is the order of importance, in other words, what are the deal-breakers?
What is Foreign Exchange and why is it so very important for the Exporter to understand?
How do we create a simple but sound contract without the involvement of the legal fraternity?
Specific attention is paid to;
- Basics of law and contracts;
- The Buyer’s Purchase Order;
- The Commercial Invoice;
- The Packing Note or List, Certificates and Markings;
- Cargo packing for the Export journey;
- The Law of Agency – Clearing and Forwarding Agents;
- Export Clearing and Forwarding Instructions;
- …and the last thing of the buyer’s mind, which must be the first thing of the seller’s mind, the mechanics of payment.
The suitable delegate does not need to have a strong understanding of Export Trade as everything will be well explained with supporting documents.
The course fees include the EXIT Export Manual and an electronic copy of all the presentation material.
Course costs include lunch and a certificate of attendance.
