A key operational task once an export order is received is to arrange the most appropriate transport option to the transaction at hand.  Marine transport is covered in its own learning unit.  

In this unit you learn about other modes of transport available to the exporter.  

This will be done by:

- Analyzing the non marine modes of transport and their characteristics.

- Learning about Multimodal transport and its own operational issues.

- Exploring mode specific issues relating to transport insurance for each mode covered

- Learning about the transport documents required for each mode of transport covered.

Completing this course will confer 5 CPD Credits towards internationally recognised Continuous Professional Development Requirements within organisations operating this kind of staff development methodology.
