Throughout the day, the delegate will see the end to end Export process and gain an understanding of the Export documentation requirements, including knowledge on shipping, using freight forwarders and couriers.

There will be numerous opportunities for questions as, there will be reviews and discussions on the processes from enquiry to dispatch. The subjects covered include:
