Procurement & the Supply Chain

This unique course is intended to provide the often-missing link for procurement specialists to the world of international goods movement and how the issues and costs they see disrupting their supply chain on a daily basis, are inadvertently created.    

This much-acclaimed course provides that ‘oh now I see what’s happening’ moment for procurement professionals, stripping away the confusion, technical jargon and conflicting objectives to show a clear path to business improvement, greater profitability and stress reduction for all concerned.     

Whether you are importing, exporting, drop-shipping, direct-shipping or working through third parties, contract terms often have a considerable unintended impact on the physical movement of goods, legal liabilities and costs.   In the modern supply chain it is quite usual for there to be several different contracts and perhaps sub-contracts all ‘daisy-chained’ together.   These practical but frequently apparently un-connected consequences can have a major impact on cash flow, timescales, freight costs, customs clearance, import duty and tax. 

Likewise the seemingly simple choice of an importer or exporter can lead to the need for businesses to register a multitude of new companies around the world to manage their tax affairs.

All of this has a major bearing on the final landed cost or delivered cost of goods.

The course is given from an integrated, pragmatic and practical viewpoint rather than an academic and theoretical one.   The emphasis is on shining a light on the supply chain to explain how seemingly unconnected elements interact to produce cause and effect. Once understood it is entirely possible to avoid difficulties and delays and achieve cost efficiency across the business disciplines involved.

- how worldwide and EU goods movements work
