Import/Export Assistance

When domestic markets stagnate, it is an opportunity to explore new markets abroad. More than ever, businesses are looking to develop global strategies. By trading internationally, companies can benefit from accessing a wider customer base, reduce dependence on existing markets and create additional revenue.

Globalization is time-consuming and there are many risks and costs associated to starting a new export venture. Finding foreign markets or suppliers and dealing with shipping complexities are only two of the challenges facing small and mid-sized firms seeking to participate in international trade.

"Assisting companies compete in a challenging global marketplace".

  • Financials
  • Licensing and property rights
  • Cultural factors

  • Provide active distributors and customers overseas, and organize meetings
  • Organize shipping and deal with custom regulations
  • Realistic evaluation of market opportunities for your products and services
  • Operational plan
  • Customs documentation/ duties and taxes calculations
