For both importers and exporters, freight cost can sometimes equal or surpass the net value of the merchandise ordered.
Cutting freight cost will be addressed Jan. 14 when the Mississippi International Trade Club hosts its monthly meeting at Dennery`s Restaurant at noon in Jackson. Bobby Joe Jones and Loretta Knight with Star Asia, an international transport and logistics firm in Atlanta, will be the guests. Star Asia offers the small importer/exporter a service and price comparable to the larger and more economic full container load importer/exporter.
Any company engaged in or considering international trade as a way to increase profits is encouraged to attend this meeting.
