Paxt Ltd strengthen their Export Department Key Skills

Paxt Ltd has a well run Export department which deal with many difficult types of documentation for each of the countries they supply to. It is very important that they are aware of all new procedures and regulations which are introduced each year, and keep up-to-date on new documentation which needs to be completed.

Sarah Dodge Export/Office Manager at Paxt Ltd recently completed an International Trade Operations and Procedure ITOPS course, with outstanding results and has confirmed the Paxt Ltd office is a force to be reckoned with.

The ITOPS qualification is a practical and relevant qualification designed to prove that candidates have the necessary skills to accurately operate the administration procedures in an international trade administration environment - whether that of a manufacturer/supplier or freight forwarder. 

The award covers the five main elements of export administration:

  • Administration Procedures
  • Export Documentation
  • Customs and Excise and other legal Requirements
  • Export Payments
  • Dispatch and Shipping

Delegates attend four formal training workshops - usually once a fortnight/every three weeks. A formal  assessment takes place approximately one month after the tuition ends. The evidence is then internally verified by an experienced assessor from the Chamber of Commerce who decides if the required standards have been met.

Tim Pollard Managing Director at Paxt Ltd, said, “the development of our staff is essential as PAXT continues to improve and maintain its leading position in the management of the world’s leading brands around the world.” “Africa remains a complex continent to export goods to, and the shipping documentation knowledge that resides in the PAXT shipping department is world class. Well done Sarah – this is a great achievement.”
