5-1-2 (Manchester) Ltd is offering our delegates the opportunity to participate in a short placement at their office, giving you the chance to see how a freight forwarder deals with your shipments and to learn how rates are calculated directly from their experienced team. What will the placement cover?

  • How a freight forwarder deals with a RFQ (Requesting rates with Airlines, Shipping lines, consolidator etc)

  • Explanation about a forwarders global reach (Overseas offices, Networks etc)

  • Learn how freight charges are calculated. (Chargeable weights, CBM etc)

  • Observe how freight bookings are received and how they are handled.

  • Observe how a transport document such as an AWB or Bill of lading is completed from export’s documentation.

  • Observe a track and trace exercise to show how cargo is monitored by the freight forwarder.

  • Observe how a Customs entry is completed and processed.

  • Opportunity for a Q&A session.

We'll be running three dates and places are limited, so enquire early to avoid disappointment.
