Functions of a Foreign Trade Assistant

A Foreign Trade Assistant, usually works in the Back Office of an exporting or importing company, providing a series of administrative activities related to the exports and imports and supporting the export department. Generally, he/she does not have a direct contact with the final customer.

Some of the activities carried out by an Foreign Trade Assistant are: management of the foreign orders, control of the exports and imports, processing of the international trade documents, management of the customs procedures, making the international offers, international transport management (follow-up , analysis, freight negotiation), customer service, incident resolution, activity reports, market research, cost control and export prices...

In other words, the Foreign Trade Assistant guarantees the foreign trade flows of an exporting or importing company, reporting directly to the director of the foreign trade department.

Unlike a Back Office for the national market, the Foreign Trade Assistant must have a solid knowledge of the international trade: customs, Incoterms® 2020, management of the foreign trade documents, international transport, documentary credits, market research, export price calculation...

In addition, the Foreign Trade Assistant must be fluent in languages. The usual thing is that the Foreign Trade Assistant will be bilingual (English and Spanish), or even knows other languages such as French or Portuguese. Therefore, the Student can study the Course in Foreign Trade Assistant in any of these four languages, under three modalities:

  1. Only one language (for example English or Spanish)
