Technical Export Training

The importance of understanding and correctly completing export documentation is crucial for any business trading internationally.  Any delay in getting the goods to your customer seriously effects your reputation and the increased costs have an influence on your profit margins.


This one-day course provides an in-depth look at export processes and requirements, giving delegates a more detailed view of the exporting processes.


The day will deliver an end-to-end guide to exporting, from the initial enquiry, through contractual and legislative requirements, concluding with securing payment.


The course is aimed at managers and staff in the accounts, export sales and logistic departments.


Numbers are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.


The event is part of a programme of workshops and training being delivered by Fife Council Economic Development, Fife Chamber of Commerce, Business Gateway Fife and Scottish Development International to support businesses to access new markets.
