Gain a better understanding of the export process and compliance requirements.

Doing business globally is challenging as well as full of opportunities. Many businesses get involved in exporting with very little knowledge of costs, regulations, compliance requirements, and logistics. They put their faith in one of the various types of intermediaries to manage the exporting process and step out of the picture.

Unfortunately, the ultimate owner of responsibility for the export flow is the actual exporter not an intermediary. It makes sense to understand the service you are buying to ensure quality performance at a fair cost.

This material gives you the tools to understand the exporting process, the various cost factors, and compliance requirements. It enables you to understand the export and logistics terminology, to ask pertinent questions, and to negotiate more effectively. It is important to learn before you take on exporting. This content has a lot to teach you.
