I am into facilitating Cavendish Banana Import-Export from since 2007. Since then, I experienced a lot. Every customer and shipments made are a learning process. Yes this business is very lucrative but unless you are familiar with the system and risks involve, you will surely end up in a mess of loss of time and money.
To resolve the issues, I formulated my own report based on years of experience, rigid research and consultation. Below is the result and I titled it as, “Cavendish Banana Import-Export CRITICAL AREAS in LOSS PREVENTION.” You may want to view it for your reference if you are into this business. Otherwise, you may just end up in losses and waste of time (especially if you are not that experienced). My report also includes actual damage report experienced by my client from his former supplier.
To have a bird’s eye view of my report, below is the actual Table of Contents…
