Upstate NY based 3PL continues to expand service offerings to clients by introducing free webinar services

Trans-Border Global Freight Systems Inc, a Latham, NY based global logistics firm, is now offering international trade compliance training through the hosting of a series of webinars.

As companies continue to look for ways to cut costs and manage time constraints while still keeping up with transportation compliance training, Trans-Border decided to offer webinar services on up-to-date industry specific topics that cater to these challenges. Creating industry awareness is a key part of Trans-Border’s business model and webinars provide another dynamic edge to its consultancy and training side of the business.

Trans-Border broadcast its first webinar back on December 10, 2010, educating clients on a new European Union Customs Regulation. That initial offering attracted 175 attendees and Allison Burak, who was one of the co-hosts, said that clients not only found it very informative, but the duration of the presentation, which is typically between 20 and 30 minutes, was ideal considering the clients time constraints. “The feedback was fantastic”, states Allison. “And to have 175 people attend on our very first webinar was beyond our expectations”. Since then, Trans-Border has hosted three more webinars, with attendance numbers steadily growing. The company anticipates between 10 and 15 more webinars for 2011 on a variety of industry specific topics such as "Import Processes And Procedures and "Export Compliance And Management Programs".

One of the more attractive features of these logistics webinars is that they are free. Unlike some other logistics providers that can charge up to $150.00 for attending, there is no cost to clients for joining a Trans-Border hosted webinar. “Trans-Border remains committed to offering educational, value added services at no cost” says Joshua Spiegel, Executive Vice-President and Partner at Trans-Border GFS.

While the concept of webinars has been around for years, the number of logistics providers that can offer such professional and intuitive webinar services, at no cost, is extremely rare. Given the feedback and Trans-Border’s global reputation, it is no wonder that clients are logging on to take advantage of this new Trans-Border service.
