Export Essentials: How Freight Forwarders Work with Federal Partners to Deliver Value to U.S. Exporters

Wednesday, December 8, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm
Online - Pacific Time

With 95 percent of the world’s consumers located outside the United States, companies who export their goods and services are more profitable than those who don’t. But sales to customers outside the United States require additional administrative steps that can pose an obstacle to small businesses ready to enter the global marketplace. That’s where an experienced freight forwarder can make the difference.

Please join the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM) and the U.S. Commercial Service in partnership with the Los Angeles Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Association (LACBFFA) to learn about government tools, resources, and services available to support U.S. small businesses in exporting their products.

In this webinar, learn how:

  • The U.S. Commercial Service offers information about exporting strategies and world markets, including assistance finding international buyers and partners
  • EXIM provides trade finance tools to help exporters mitigate the risk of nonpayment from their international buyers and access the cash flow needed to fulfill orders
  • Freight forwarders can build on federal programs by providing critical value-added services to their exporting clients

Speakers will include:

  • Gregory Moore, Regional Director for the Western Region, Export-Import Bank of the United States
  • Rachid Sayouty, Director of the Los Angeles Downtown USEAC, U.S. Commercial Service
  • Representative, Los Angeles Customs Brokers & Freight Forwarders Association

The discussion will be followed by a live Q&A session when attendees will have the opportunity ask questions. With 300,000 small business owners embracing exporting as a way to increase revenue, the focus will be on services to help them tap into the international market.
