In Company – Perishable Exporters Logistics & Documentation Two Day Workshop

2 Day Workshop

If your staff have not been trained in Perishable Exports at the School of Shipping, then you know they have had no formal training. What they know now they most probably learned from a peer, by osmosis or experience.  Is their knowledge and skills set ensuring that you do comply with regulatory controls for perishable products? Can you demonstrate to your clients that your team is fully trained for this complex part of international trade?

This Two day workshop will demystify the regulatory controls! It is convened either at the school of Shipping or in-house at your premises by our expert who is actively working in this field.  Sharpen your skills and reduce your risk.

Food security gains significance in every market month by month, not year on year! Importers need to prove to their health & agricultural authorities that any perishable product is not just safe for human consumption but that it carries no pests harmful to the import country.
