Wks:Fund of Intl Trade&Shippng

The purpose of this workshop is to explain fundamental principles and implications of international trade transactions which require goods movement. We will explore key relationships between the commercial agreement, the financial aspect of the transaction and the physical movement of the goods (international air and sea freight). An important focus will be risk minimization through the pragmatic use of international terms of sale, intermodal bills of lading, surveys and insurance. In addition, other current areas of concern in the field of international logistics will be reviewed, including shipping markets, non-tariff barriers, security, foreign trade zones, and currency fluctuations.
