Generation Female is pleased to support the following initiative:
UPS® Women Exporters Program Italia
The Women Exporters Program represents the Group's global effort to support female entrepreneurs around the world to improve their knowledge of export and logistics of shipments. How? By making its resources and know-how available, UPS can concretely help all these small and medium-sized companies to expand their presence in markets around the world.
To date, WEP has reached around 6,000 female entrepreneurs around the world and helped launch many new businesses. Today, the pandemic has significantly impacted the “pink” business segment, especially in Italy, and new tools are needed that allow today's and tomorrow's entrepreneurs to gather information and create the necessary connections to attract potential customers.
The Women Exporters Program focuses on the capacity building activities of entrepreneurs through an easy and immediate application dedicated training proposal, accessible upon registration, accompanied by a free dedicated consultation with our experts on possible solutions for their companies.
The courses will take place online starting October 26, through modules by UPS experts focused on each phase of the export and shipping process, providing basic notions and suggestions on how to plan and carry out your activities successfully, maximizing results and reducing costs. In particular, the lessons will focus on: customs regulation, management of export documents and costs related to access to new markets (tariffs, duties, excise duties); efficient management of freight forwarding and customs brokerage services; use of warehouse solutions to reduce costs and create economies of scale; management of logistics solutions for e-commerce; implementation of customer experience solutions.
The modules include case studies, examples and quizzes, and will be complemented by interventions or appointments with companies, experts and institutions and who collaborate with UPS by providing their expertise in export activities.
