Lake Success, New York – Ocean World Lines (OWL), a global, single source NVOCC (non-vessel operating common carrier) and a subsidiary of Pacer International, announced today that it is adding a new topic to its recently launched trade seminar series entitled: The Logistics & Law of Exporting from the United States. The objective of the class is to help exporters increase efficiencies and create a measurable competitive advantage when selling goods overseas.
Created for both agricultural and industrial exporters, the presentation combines elements of regulatory compliance along with best practices that characterize successful export programs. Areas of focus include Export Administration Regulations, Incoterms 2010, export documentation, letters of credit and the Automated Export System (AES). This module benefits functional areas that include sales, order management, accounting, finance, risk management and international logistics.
The complimentary half day session will be held at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Fresno, California on May 10 and Sheraton Grand in Sacramento, California on May 11, 2011.
“By attending these seminars, exporters will find new ways to enhance their overall value proposition through the proper execution of export processes,” said Dan Gardner, OWL’s CEO. “In the global marketplace companies have to offer more than a quality product at a fair price – they also need to create additional appeal through the tactics they employ when shipping goods internationally. Whether one speaks of the impact on landed costs, time to market, customer service, invoicing or collection of funds, properly designed logistics programs are a must for any successful exporter.”
Gardner says the kick-off event in Fresno is targeted towards the agricultural sector, which has been the foundation of the United State’s international trade for more than 100 years. “We as a nation can’t lose our emphasis on this sector. We feel there are excellent export growth opportunities for agricultural products, and we want to support that growth in any way we can. Needless to say, our decision to host two back-to-back events in Fresno and Sacramento is a direct reflection of our commitment to one of the country’s most productive regions.”
“Again, we feel it is our responsibility as good corporate citizens to conduct seminars for our customers on the issues affecting their business and to help grow American exports as much as possible,” said Gardner. “We are very serious about our new mantra: Logistics Excellence Through Applied Learning, and we will be announcing more seminars and dates very soon.”
