Poor understanding of international trade procedures often costs time and money and can even result in heavy fines. Over 65% of companies attend training courses because of issues with export documents compliance. This export documents course explains all the key requirements when shipping products globally. The content is updated to keep up with the latest industry and Brexit developments. Key elements of the course can be easily implemented into most business systems, increasing the chances of reducing costs and increasing sales.
