Subject Description (International transport and logistics):

No exporter can approach an export transaction without taking into account its transport and logistics requirements. This course will give to the student a thorough understanding of the main modes of transport in international trade and address the more common management issues related to them.

Transport is one of the main component factors taken into account when determining the final price of a product. Logistics is the process of planning, implementation and control of both the physical and information flow, as well as the storage of raw materials, semi-finished and finished products, from the point of origin to the end consumer in the most efficient and effective way possible.

International Transport

Transport and Logistics in Africa

Transport documents perform two functions:
1) It is a proof of the existence of the contract of carriage.
2) it is a proof of receipt of the products by the carrier.

While in transit, the goods are exposed to the risk of damage and thefts. Therefore; it is recommended to ensure the products. The importer or the exporter will agree about who is responsible for insurance.

Although the packaging of products might seem of small importance; it is one of the fundamental aspects of international trade. Good packaging should protect the products during transport and prevent theft; it should be economic and achieve a balance between effectiveness and cost (both from the material used and the time spent on packing the products). Companies with small experience in international trade are recommended to work with an intermediary company who has experience in packaging for export.
