This course takes a detailed look at the skills and customs procedures required when moving goods between different countries under cross-border international trading agreements. Aimed at company heads, logistics and global sourcing employees who handle the shipment of goods from an overseas country to another overseas country, not passing through the UK.
Also known as Drop Shipping, 3rd Country Supplies, Cross-Border Deliveries, 3rd Party Exports … instructing suppliers to ship directly to customers or shipping from distributors centres in different countries is becoming more common but it requires careful planning and a variety of skills. In this one-day event we will look at the skills and procedures required to moving goods between different countries, touching on all aspects of the international movements of goods. How you can control paperwork en route, selecting the right delivery terms and organising import clearance overseas. Full of sources of information, case studies and useful practical tips, it’s a must of anyone considering or currently doing these types of transactions.
Modern supply chain requirements need a greater understanding of overseas countries. Buying goods in one country – selling to another country; why bring them into the UK? Ship Direct! But if this isn’t done with skill and total awareness of the requirements – commercial, legal and practical – then it can turn into an expensive disaster. This presentation will help clarify the confusing aspects for a potentially risky operation and ensure you can set up a working procedure. We will highlight the internal points within the company who have an input to this area and help control costs – or at least avoid hidden expenditure. Finally, we look at what impact BREXIT is going to have in relation to direct shipments. This needs consideration and careful planning.
