Transit & Shipping (SCM04)


    The transit function, which is usually part of the procurement process, is aiming at transporting goods from a supplier located at a point of origin to its ultimate consignee in the country of use. In the oil & gas industry, this final destination may be an isolated/remote area with difficult access. This makes the 'Transit & Shipping' function an essential element of operational efficiency in the supply chain.
    Transporting industrial equipment from one point in the world to another within the required timeframe and with effective cost control is a condition for the success of oil and gas development projects.

    This course provides guidelines and best practices to properly track the shipment of your goods and gives you a sound knowledge of international trade and the physical organisation of the international transport chain.
