Logistics Management magazine is partnering up with the National Industrial Transportation League (NITL) and American River International, a provider of import/export management consulting services, will offer a half-day seminar on Monday, February 28, entitled “Understanding and Managing Incoterms 2010.”

As defined by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Incoterms rules are key commercial tools developed and maintained by ICC and used in certain contracts for the sale of goods all over the world. They define the responsibilities of buyers and sellers for the delivery of goods under sales contracts and determine how costs and risks are allocated, according to the ICC.

“The new Incoterms came into effect on January 1, 2011 and anyone connected to, concerned with, or having responsibilities for the international sales and movement of goods should consider coming to this program,” said NITL officials. “Understanding the latest changes adopted by the new Incoterms and learning how to apply them will be essential tools for shippers, carriers, intermediaries, attorneys and legal advisors who must manage ocean cargo documentation.”

The February 28 half-day program begins at 8:30 a.m., with registration and breakfast taking place at that time, with the Incoterms seminar running from 9-noon ET. It will be held at Baruch College, located at 55 Lexington Ave. between 24th and 25th Streets at the Weissman Center for International Business on the 14th floor.

The course will be taught by Ms. Kelly Raia who has more than 20 years experience in freight forwarding and customhouse brokerage. Ms. Raia is the Import/Export Compliance Officer, Vice President and Associate Partner with American River International, LTD since 1996. American River and its affiliate, The World Academy, are highly respected and qualified in educating companies in topics of international commerce such as Incoterms.

All registrants receive a copy of the new edition of the official Incoterms book (a $65 value) as well as breakfast. Discount registrations are available for each additional registration from the same company.
