New Chamber International course for exporters

16 July 2014

A major new course to help businesses  wanting to trade internationally get up to speed with the latest developments is being held by Chamber International next week (July 24)

Scheduled to capitalise on the growing interest in overseas trade triggered by Government moves to re-balance the economy and Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership‘s We Are International campaign, the one-day course is being held at Chamber International, Bradford.
Conducted by senior export adviser, Mike Strawson, the course, part of the British Chamber of Commerce accredited range and certified by them, is aimed at staff involved with export sales, payment, documentation, dispatch and import and export activities.

Key elements of the course are methods of export quotation, deciding on delivery terms, use of Incoterms 2010, bills of exchange/drafts, Letters of Credit, assessing risks, methods of transport, selecting and using a freight forwarder, using distribution analysis, export documentation, customs compliance and sources of help and assistance.

Mike Strawson says: “The course also provides an excellent opportunity for overseas trade supervisors and managers to get a better understanding of the detailed work carried out by their staff. Overseas trade is changing on a daily basis but the course will explain international trade concepts and procedures in practical, easy-to-understand terms.”

Chamber International assists chambers of commerce with a wide range of specialist international trade services and is also supporting Leeds City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) by delivering its We Are International export campaign, which aims to being an extra £1.6bn to ten local authority areas and create thousands of new jobs in the next five years.
