Supply chain management focuses on integrating the disciplines of an organization removing silos and promoting collaborative relationships. Logistics and transportation are responsible for products arriving correctly, on time, damage-free, and with necessary paperwork. These disciplines can make an important contribution to moving freight if they understand the process, requirements, and standards.
Why Should You Attend
Moving freight domestically or internationally is not just for logistics, freight forwarders, and customs brokers.
Moving freight globally involves regulations, documentation, duties, marking/labeling, global suppliers, ocean/air freight, and commercial terms to name a few of the requirements. Global logistics requires that the internal supply chain members such as supply management, sourcing, finance, marketing, and demand planning have an end-to-end understanding of the many factors that are involved. Every element of the internal supply chain will ultimately be involved in the moving of freight globally or domestically.
