Getting to grips with Incoterms® – the clear way

When we run courses on international trade procedures we explain things in a way that everyone can understand. And this is not what we say – but those who’ve taken part.

‘Understanding Incoterms’ is the next half-day seminar on our agenda in Leeds later this month. Incoterms - the three-letter trade terms used since the 1930s and heavily revised two years ago – are essential to overseas trade transactions. Getting them wrong can cost you thousands, says our highly experienced associate Mike Strawson, who will be running them seminar.

Our courses are all about clarity and accuracy. The feedback from participants – both new and experienced in exporting - is overwhelmingly positive.

Peter Morrall, an export sales engineer with Keighley-based Byworth Boilers Ltd found our ‘Understanding Exporting’ course last month especially useful – especially because he had no previous exporting experience.

“It was very well run and gave me a good, informative overview,” he says. “It was useful for those completely new to it like me or those who have been involved for a long time. One person who’d been exporting for years said they found it a good refresher.

“Mike Strawson was very knowledgeable and could answer all the questions. He got everyone involved. And he covered the points in-depth, which was very useful. I’m on another Chamber International course ‘Passport to Exporting’ this week.” 

‘Understanding Incoterms’ takes place in Leeds from 9.30am to 1pm on Monday, 15 October. The cost is £160 + VAT for Chamber members and £195 + VAT for non-members. For further information or to book contact Gemma Price on 0845 034 7200.
