Scenario: Assume you work for a specialist production plant in Kilkenny in a logistics function and you have received interest from a US customer.
Draw up a detailed pro forma invoice (i.e., include realistic timings, all typical line-item costs, appropriate and relevant steps and incoterms, etc) you world supply to your potential US customer in advance of you receiving the following order: The export of 10 high-end, specialist, patented, electronic medical device products for use in cardiology diagnostics weighing 2500kg in one 40ft. volume container from your Kilkenny to O’Hare International using air freight containers (standard LD9 ULD containers).
The items have a total ex-works value of $900,000. In addition, your potential customer wants you to organise everything in association with the delivery to their premises in Aurora, Illinois and wants you to include these items and costs in your quotation.
You will need to research this topic justifying your selection. State any assumptions you make and supply references for the sources of your information.
