Export Masterclass: Incoterms Rules Explained

No export consignment is ready until the transactional paperwork is done.

Learn to create and distribute high quality shipping, customs, and international trade documents designed to reduce penalties and charges, and enhance productivity in your business, by making sure you get the paperwork right the first time.

In this Export Masterclass we take an interactive approach as we advance your knowledge and understanding of all the necessary procedures for successful trading in the current export market. The session will be facilitated by Incoterms rules expert Allyson Wood.

  • Legal implications of misusing a term
  • Putting Incoterms into practice
  • Export documentation required by government and statutory legislation
