Post Pandemic Maritime Shipping Workshop

It’s been three years since the beginning of COVID-19 and exporters are still dealing with the effects such as cancelled/rolled/delayed bookings, equipment/space availability, vessel capacity, inflation, etc. There is a shift that many exporters still need to make in order to navigate this new way of doing business post pandemic.

Please join us for our “Post Pandemic Maritime Shipping” workshop in Modesto on January 24, 2023 from 8:30 AM to 4:00 PM. This workshop is specifically tailored for SCTC members and is excellent for beginners and experienced exporters alike.

We will have several speakers discussing topics related to export and how the recent pandemic has changed the way you should be conducting business:

  • Dan Gardner, Trade Facilitators, Inc. – Post pandemic maritime shipping, pre-planning of shipments, alternative options to move cargo when equipment and capacity are tights, Ocean Shipping Reform Act, technology, etc.
  • Danielle Austin, Umpqua Bank – Cash Against Documents and foreign trends, Letters of Credit, documents for payment, open account risks, foreign exchange/dual invoicing, trade credit insurance, USDA Export Credit Guarantee Program, etc.
  • Jeff Cox, Best Drayage – CARB requirements and how it will affect the drayage industry, post pandemic preparedness, technology changes, the value of building strong relationships with your drayage carrier, quality service vs price – the ultimate decision, etc.
  • Carrier Panel featuring representatives from Hapag Lloyd, Mediterranean Shipping Company and CMA-CGM.
