A documentation specialist is someone who is responsible for preparing documents related to a transaction.
These documents may include invoices, purchase orders, packing lists, bills of lading, certificates of origin, or certificates of insurance.
Documentation specialists liaise with shippers, carriers, and brokers to optimize the various documents that may be needed for a successful transaction.
Documentation specialists are responsible for ensuring that documents are accurate, complete, and in compliance with government regulations regarding international trade (such as customs, transportation, and import/export).
Documentation specialists may also travel to different countries and locations that their business requires.
