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.


This Spanish-language webinar, in collaboration with the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC), will feature Hispanic-owned manufacturers sharing their export success stories. It will also include federal agency representatives outlining export promotion resources.
