Citrus Export Supply Chain Short Course
The “export supply chain” refers to all the actions and processes that occur to export fruit aonce it leaves the packhouse door and until it arrives in the overseas market.
In the Citrus Export Supply Chain short course we look at each aspect of this chain, the roles of the service providers (cold stores, fruit terminals, export agents, shipping agents, etc.) in the chain, the importance of meeting market requirements, the role of inspections, the requirements for special markets, the documentation involved in each step of the chain, and the best practices for ensuring that fruit arrives in the overseas markets in the best possible condition.
Every person in the citrus production system should have an understanding of what happens to export fruit after it leaves their hands, and this short course is the ideal induction to the export supply chain.
