Are you sure that your transport and exports to Italy do not run any risk? Do you ask your partners for the necessary insurance coverage? Are you sure that you have correctly completed all the valid documentation for export? Are you sure you know all the responsibilities of the Incoterms returns that you agree with the customer?

In recent years, Italy has consolidated itself as a commercial partner for Switzerland and over time has become increasingly fundamental for the export of Swiss products and even more for those of Ticino. Swiss products have been sold in Italy for decades, but this does not mean that everyone is aware of the correct export and shipping procedures.

In recent years, in fact, we have witnessed numerous cases of problems encountered by Swiss companies for not having been able to better manage shipments and customs procedures, with serious economic consequences for the parties concerned.

In order to minimize the risks of customs and shipping procedures, a seminar entitled ” The risks related to customs operations and transport in Swiss-Italian trade relations” was organized for company managers, managers, managers and managers of the export, shipping and logistics sector. At that time, the Chamber of Commerce, Industry, Crafts and Services of the Canton of Ticino (Cc-Ti) will conduct a round table that will involve Franzosini as a Swiss shipping company, an Italian customs expert as well as the Swiss customs authorities in retracing the steps that a company must take to export the goods destined for an Italian customer, in order to highlight the critical points and possible solutions.

The event is open to all interested parties and will take place on Monday, November 17, 2014, from 16.30 to 18.30 (followed by aperitif) at the Hotel Coronado in Mendrisio.
