Supply Chain, Logistics & Warehouse Training

International and Intermodal Cargo Traffic Management Training

In today’s global economy, every company is or soon will be engaged in trade outside of the country’s contiguous borders.  It’s important to understand the differences involved in shipping or receiving goods that must be moved by means other than the highway system or the rail system.

Each company needs to have the knowledge necessary to use every mode and tool available to ship and receive their freight. International & intermodal cargo traffic management is designed to give the participant that capability.

This training is interactive.  We will concentrate on the issues which are important to the group and will use examples pertinent to the industries represented in each audience.  We will explore packaging and transportation options appropriate in the use of Intermodalism.
