We offer you this opportunity to learn and or update on the minimum requirements for documentation in transporting goods to export markets, so that your consignment arrives safely and promptly at its destination.

At this seminar you will hear about the essential documents and international trading language they are based on.  Our presenters will share how to create and distribute high quality shipping, customs, and international trade documents, along with sharing what each of the commonly used Incoterms mean and their implications for your business.  We will use case studies to illustrate their application.

Following the presentation there will be a Q&A panel made up of our presenters and a representative from Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade and New Zealand Customs.

At the end of the webinar, TradeWindow will be available for an additional 30-minute session to take questions on how they can help your business.
