Session 3: The Forwarder’s Perspective

Freight forwarders are an important link in the logistics supply chain.

An important project cargo freight forwarder will speak about the role and responsibilities of the freight forwarder.

Session 4: Operations: The Physical Cargo Movement

Once the booking has been arranged and the documents have been cleared, the physical movement of the cargo occurs.  Careful planning and strong attention to safety are needed, otherwise the results could be catastrophic!  An experienced shipping executive will discuss the importance of safe operations and resulting good out turn of cargo.
