Consistent with its grand vision of empowering entrepreneurs of all sizes to reach the global market, the country’s leading logistics firm In-line Forwarder engaged Cebu exporters last October for the “Usapang Exports: Unlocking Export Opportunities” organized by the Department of Trade and Industry – Export Marketing Bureau (DTI-EMB) and DTI Region 7 (Central Visayas).

Over 100 business owners and exporters – spanning key industries such as furniture, handicrafts, and agriculture – gathered at the Golden Prince Hotel in Cebu City.  In-line Forwarder discussed the intricacies of logistics and brokerage solutions for export fulfillment alongside key industry experts from the Food and Drug Administration, Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Forest Management Bureau, DTI-Bureau of International Trade Relations, and Bureau of Customs.

“It is a huge honor for us to collaborate with the DTI EMB, as well as key agencies of the Philippine government to take our export sector to the next level,” says Herbert Caragay, Operations Head of In-Line Forwarder. “Helping our community of micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) across the nation through our strategic expertise in logistics is key for our exporters to navigate the evolving dynamics of global trade and supply chain.”

Usapang Exports is an official DTI-EMB project under its Philippine Export Competitiveness Program which aims to capacitate existing and aspiring exporters through learning sessions on export opportunities, trends, cross-border regulations, and other timely topics.  One-on-one consultation sessions were also conducted in Cebu by In-line Forwarder, Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Plant and Industry, DENR, and the Philippine Exporters Confederation.

According to In-line Forwarder, they now have 6 offices across the country, including Cebu, and is bound to open a new warehouse in the United States for import-export facilitation and cross-border fulfillment operations.

Key preparations are also underway towards the National Exporters Week from December 4 to 7 spearheaded by the DTI-EMB, Export Development Council, and PHILEXPORT. It will be a crucial gathering of large export players, government agencies, and export enablers including In-Line Forwarder who will be part of the enablers exhibit at the Sheraton Hotel on December 7, the same day as the National Exporters Congress. The theme for this year is “Agile Philippines: Empowering Exporters towards Global Excellence.”
