Answers in Trade: Ocean Freight - Logistics & Buying Strategy
Getting your products safely to customers in foreign countries is a complicated process, and to mitigate risk it is important to understand how your product is delivered. Ocean Freight is a common method of delivery for certain items not able to be delivered by Air, and can be a low cost option for transportation. How much space will you need to ship your product(s)? What should you expect when buying space on a vessel, and what do you need to know to make sure that you are doing it correctly? How much insurance should you purchase in case of bad weather or other delays?
This webinar will answer those questions and help your company to be an informed purchaser of Ocean Freight. Brett Kelliher is the Ocean Freight Buyer for Valvoline in Lexington Kentucky, and will lead us to a better understanding of moving freight by ocean.
