Many companies engaged in international trade don't realize how much public information is available on a company's global shipping activities. Though the data varies by country and mode of transportation , there is a wealth of information on potential buyers, sellers, and competitors. But, you need to understand where you can get the data , and how to use it.
Import Genius co-founder Michael Kanko has played a leading role in expanding the access to this shipping data. For nearly 15 years, Michael and his team have created one of the most relied upon research tools in global trade. Users include small to large companies, and Small Business Development Centers to colleges and universities. The data is useful to build out the supply chains, find new international buyers, and research the shipping activities of competitors.
Jim Foley will lead Michael on a lively interview so you can understand the history of this data , what Michael has done to make it more transparent, and how you can use the data to support your global strategy. The interview will be live followed by a Q&A session.
