We live in a globalized marketplace with goods being purchased around the world, manufactured in exciting locations and shipped to even more countries. There is very little that can’t be shipped to another country and very few countries where shipments aren’t accepted, so if you have been considering getting into the import/export business, here are a few important considerations.
There are better, more cost effective ways to distribute and market products in an overseas market without the cost of having to set up office overseas. Overseas places of business require a host of regulations, visas and other scenarios that make the option of exporting to or importing from another country prohibitively expensive.
It is also the case that your potential seller or American customer, if you are already abroad, may not want the hassle of overseas shipping formalities, thus avoiding the unpleasantries of customs other freight issues. The paperwork can be formidable, but you shouldn’t let these issues put you off of importing or exporting.
What you need is an excellent middle man – someone to help file the proper paperwork, ensure your shipments are handled with the best of care and delivered with the proper letters of credit.
