Mastering Import and Export Management
Simply the most comprehensive import/export guide available.
Here is the definitive guide to supply chain management in the post-9/11 world, intensively researched and painstakingly written by one of the leading experts in the field.
Before the terrorist attacks that destroyed New York's World Trade Center in 2001, managing the import/export supply chain was "complicated, convoluted, and difficult" enough, as Tom Cook observes. Since then, new security and compliance requirements have come into play. Some of these mandates are still evolving, and some pose special challenges for smaller exporters. To remain competitive, companies of all sizes must understand the changes, anticipate new directions, and keep the costs of compliance and security in balance. This book provides the timely and practical information necessary to meet those goals.
