The pandemic has posed significant challenges for exports, imports, and supply chains globally. Understanding and managing your transport, logistics, exports, and supply chains are critical to enhancing your competitiveness in the global market.

In this online workshop, you will learn about the various types of export documentation required to sell goods overseas and gain an understanding of exporting and logistics processes, saving your business time and money.

You will also learn some of the most important aspects of managing your transport, logistics, and payment risks, and we encourage you to share your exporting experiences with other attendees. You will leave with the confidence to look at export processes with a new sense of understanding and clarity and this will lead you to become a more capable and successful exporter.

  • How to create invoices, packing lists, and other documents
