Practical, relevant and essential import training aimed at enhancing performance

This one day seminar helps delegates to recognise and overcome complications such as managing long-distance relationships, organising international transport and dealing with customs clearance issues. Being trained to understand the full import process helps businesses to react quickly and professionally to situations which often arise as a result of operating global supply chains.   Knowledge will be gained in the areas of risks and costs associated with Incoterms® 2010, various payment methods, licensing, HM Revenue and Customs and duties and tariffs, which enables the real cost of the imported goods to be calculated (ready for sale on the UK market).
