My role at BDP international was an Export intern . As an export intern, I processed new bookings. When a new booking is processed and “space released” by me it is sent to two parties. One in the US which is a warehouse and one in the destination country. That information is then used to get to plan logistics like getting the container that is being exported to the destination, by what carriers, and by a certain date. I learned that with each booking there were rules and regulations based on if a container was carrying non hazardous or hazardous material, and there were instructions on how to carry them from warehouse to destination on vessels such as by rail . Some of the most important information included the documentation cutoff date, the port of load, port of discharge, ETD(expected time of discharge) and the ETA (expected time of arrival). This relates to operations management(MSOM 3103) as much of the export process involved scheduling times, dates, and destinations to and from warehouses that had to be adhered to or that would mean making other arrangements that would push back arrival dates or even cost money. The atmosphere working at BDP international as an export intern was one that welcomed questions and learning. Operations and logistics are crucial in every business as one part of the business process depends on the other.
