Key Topics - Managing Your International Freight Risks

This practical one day interactive workshop will cover:

Incoterms® 2010: ICC’s Incoterms® rules are regularly incorporated into sales contracts worldwide and all importers and exporters should understand how they work to avoid costly misunderstandings by clearly defining the responsibilities of sellers and buyers for the delivery of goods. 

This module will take companies through how the Incoterms® rules work in conjunction with other contracts and also answers questions such as:
  • What are the Incoterms® rules and what can they do for me?
  • How do I reference Incoterms® 2010 in a contract of sale, insurance or payment?
  • What are the main differences between Incoterms® 2000 and Incoterms® 2010?
  • What is the most efficient rule for which mode of transport?
Trade terminology explained: There are hundreds of different abbreviations and acronyms used in commerce and International Trade as well as shipping, insurance and commercial terms. This module will take you through some of the key terminology that you might need to be aware of.

Common freight costs: We all know that when we receive a quote from a freight forwarder it can be a bit “double dutch”. This module will help companies to understand how to make sense of it all and understand some of the more obscure charges and why you need to keep an eye on them. The module will also help companies understand how they can compare different quotes from different forwarders? Companies can bring along examples of quotes they have received as part of the workshop and our expert will use these as live case study examples to help you understand your quotes.

Choosing the right freight forwarder:  Choosing the right service provider is vital for any company and sometimes you need to shop around to find one that provides a quality service. Selecting a freight forwarder just on pricing may not be the best solution for your company. This module will take companies through the key considerations when you are looking for a new freight forwarder.

Marine insurance for air and sea cargo: Why you need marine insurance, types of policy should you be using, and how can you obtain marine insurance.
The supply chain as a Unique Value Proposition: How a carefully considered supply chain can maximise your bottom line.
