Mastering Export Documentation
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Have you had a shipment “stuck” in Customs because a document is missing or not filled out correctly?
Do you copy information from a prior shipping document to complete all required fields when you are uncertain about the meaning?
Has your company been charged “documentation” fees or had a shipment held up because the documents had to be corrected?
What you don’t know can hurt your business. Many companies suffer unnecessary shipment delays, Customs audits, and demurrage charges due to incomplete or inaccurate documentation for shipments. During this two-hour session, attendees will discuss several forms including: Commercial Invoices, Packing Lists, Shippers Export Declarations (SEDs)/Electronic Export Information (EEI), and Certificates of Origin. Each document will be reviewed step-by-step to understand exactly how these forms should be completed and where attendees can look within company documents to ensure the information being used is accurate.
Who should attend?
Traffic managers, purchasing managers, shipping/receiving personnel, compliance officers, sales managers, customer service managers, and anyone involved or concerned with international shipments.
