Welcome to Freight Training


My name is phill doran, and I specialize in international risk-management training & consulting in the three trade disciplines of Exporting, Importing and Merchanting.

Freight Training was established in 1997 and since then I have worked with several thousand delegates – participants drawn from hundreds, if not thousands of different companies across many types of industry, all with varying degrees of experience.

In addition to training and consulting, I write and publish the specialist trade dictionary “Trading Words & Phrases” which incorporates A Commercial Terms Companion: see the panel to the lower-right for details on how to order the 6th and latest edition of this reference work.

Contact me directly if you require further information, or you may wish to browse the range of services I offer, using the link opposite (above, right).

Thanks for thinking of me.


I offer private in-house training for groups, tailored workshops, and specialized consulting, aligning a future model or models to Best Practice, or advancing an existing impasse to resolution.
