Artemus  Transportation Solutions will be holding its Global Commerce- International Transportation & Trade Shipping 101 Course on September 15-19 in the Seattle-Tacoma area. This is the third time the Shipping 101 course will be hosted by the Marine Exchange of Puget Sound in Seattle/Tacoma.
 
The Marine Exchange of Puget Sound is a non-profit association that provides members certain communications and information services relative to local commercial vessel activities. Founded in 1981, members consist of Puget Sound-based steamship agents and operations, tug boat operators, ship chandlers, port authorities, and state and federal agencies.      
 
"We have had truckers, Port employees, lawyers and teachers take this course and they all have a common goal to understand the basics of shipping," said John Veentjer, Executive Director, Marine Exchange of Puget Sound. "Through the course, they are able to effectively apply the information at their respective workplace, which is why we think it is beneficial for the community."
 
"The shipping industry is so diverse and that is why this comprehensive course is beneficial to anyone in the industry," said Steve Pniewski, President and CEO of Artemus. "Of course we have the entry-level employees from the shipping companies come in but we also see NVOCC/FF staff, Importers, Exporters, insurance agents, professors or lawyers in the maritime industry take this course so they have a better understanding of their clients."
 
The comprehensive, four-and-a-half day course began in Virginia in 2004 and has since expanded to New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Houston as well as Seattle/Tacoma. Students who complete the course have a solid foundation in international trade and transportation, including critical work processes, compliance requirements and different modes of transportation.
 
The course is also eligible for credits. For continuing education students, participants will be eligible to receive 3.2 CEU from Old Dominion University post completion of the program.  The course also carries 20 CCS/CES Credits through the National Customs House Brokers and Freight Forwarders Association.
