Benefits Of Export Outsourcing

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

It is necessary for many businesses to be able to successfully access the markets in all parts of the world. However, to ship products overseas, one must have knowledge of the many regulations that affect international traffic, obtain the proper licenses from the State Department, and many other tasks. Failure to comply with regulations can quickly result in serious fines and other penalties. Because of this, many businesses that deal in overseas markets are now choosing to outsource their exporting to qualified professionals.

Because of the complexity involved in handling international sales and volume of shipments, export control issues that affect the sales of these products, knowing the requirements and how the rules effect every shipment based on commodity, a high level of expertise is needed. It is important to understand just what the export control requirements are and the differences depending on shipment type. These differences can and do affect each shipment depending on the commodity, country of consignment, end user and country of end use.

Firms with new or large expansion into foreign markets beyond the domestic markets now can outsource all of the details of processing the orders to international markets to a particular export outsourcing company. Export outsourcing is the method that many firms now choose to have international orders subcontracted, including all export processing. Doing so allows a successful firm to focus on product development and fulfillment while conserving valuable company resources. A US firm that uses export outsourcing can concentrate on their manufacturing and domestic shipping.

When using an export outsourcing company, a US firm will be able to provide the order fulfillment, but ship only as far as the new domestic headquarters, and then pass the processing of the international order to the export outsourcing agency. This agency will carry out the entire stepwise process for an affordable price, making it an ideal option for businesses large and small.

What the US firm would do is to bill and ship the products domestically to the headquarters of the export outsourcing agency which then bills and ships the order to the global customer off shore. The firm performing this service will also typically ensure the shipments are also processed with the correct documentation on the invoices as well as the export declarations and licenses as needed. This will save domestic firms costs resulting from potential delays or penalties for lack of proper handling and international documentation.

Also known as export management firms, these companies are invaluable because they have the vital, detailed expertise in working with international trade, global business processing, global transactions on domestic imports and exports in the retail, food service and institutional and bulk food and agribusiness products.

The same can be said for the health, fitness, beauty aids, vitamins, hygiene items and consumer goods and commodities. Another market that frequently outsources its exports is the Military Aerospace industry.
