Export/Import Coordinator

Export Coordinators coordinate with shippers, truckers, steamship lines and overseas offices for the export of shipments. They complete the process of shipment, which includes arranging for pick-up, booking, and document preparation such as bill of lading, invoicing, etc., and forwarding follow-up with tracking and tracing to final destination. Similarly, import coordinators are responsible for overseeing the delivery of incoming goods and ensuring that they comply with customs regulations. They do this by tracking and documenting shipments, advising clients, categorizing shipments by tariff coding system, and using appropriate packaging to prepare items for shipment.
