May 2017 Professional Development Meeting:  
Basics of International Transportation

Speaker:  Kimberly Daniels, MBA, LCB, CLTD, CEO, Mercantile Logistics & International Trade, Inc.

When it comes to moving goods around the world, there are many steps in the process, but it is not as complicated to do as it is to explain. Kim Daniels, a licensed customs broker and CLTD certified APICS member, brings more than a decade of experience in international supply chain to walk through the process of international trade. 

This professional development meeting will discuss many topics that affect all kinds of transportation: freight terminology, modes of transport, how to devise and implement a proper transportation plan, as well as identifying the potential barriers and delays. With these skills, participants will be able to look at their operations to not just remove inefficiencies in their supply chain, but also prepare for potential issues before they become serious problems.

Join us on May 18th to find out the unique challenges of managing international transportation! 

Kimberly Daniels has more than 10 years of professional experience in international logistics. She started as a logistics manager for a construction supplier, importing hundreds of containers per month for projects on and around the Las Vegas Strip. Kim later went on to assist small business owners with the importation and exportation of their goods as the freight director for an e-commerce fulfillment warehouse. 

Kim is currently the CEO of Mercantile Logistics & International Trade, Inc., a small business that focuses on the international trade needs of other small businesses. As a licensed and experienced customs broker, Kim is astute to the regulations imposed by the US Government for goods crossing the border. As a small business owner, she is keenly aware of the needs of small businesses to operate efficiently and effectively, creating her own programs to smooth costs for clients in providing required customs services. 

Kim believes that only by working together, rather than separately, can the client achieve their global expansion goals. Kim holds a Certificate in Logistics, Transportation and Distribution (CLTD) from APICS.
