Kootenay Shipping webinar

Kootenay Shipping webinar

For many business owners, shipping goods within/ beyond the Kootenays can be time-consuming, unreliable, and expensive. The new Kootenay Shipping website aims to help with that.

As we launch this site, we’ve invited a panel of experts to discuss shipping in and beyond the Kootenays. They will discuss:

  • Logistics and transportation costs and how businesses can manage them.
  • What to consider when choosing a transportation options.
  • How best to move your goods—from both the shipper’s and the handler’s perspective.
  • What does a shipping broker do? How much do they cost? When should a business use one?
  • What are your shipping options?
  • Tips from experience (you don’t have to learn everything the hard way)

Webinar Delivery

We will be offering two free one-hour sessions via Zoom video conferencing:

  • Shipping goods around the Columbia Basin and Beyond (all goods)
  • Shipping Food, Perishable Goods, and Temperature-Sensitive Goods*

*This session is specific to the challenges of transporting perishable/ temperature-sensitive goods including vegetables, meat, bottled, shelf-stable but not freezable, and other products of this nature. Note: if this is your type of product, you may benefit from both sessions.

These webinars will be interactive, with time for questions. If you have a specific question(s), submit it beforehand to info@bbaprogram.ca. Pre-submitted questions will help direct the conversation. If you prefer to ask a question anonymously, let us know and it will be read by a facilitator.

Note, these sessions will be recorded and made available to those unable to attend.
