With technologies advancing faster than ever before, and countless service providers preparing to expand globally, there is great opportunity for value-added resellers to begin making international connections particularly where cloud-based technologies are concerned. Companies that are growing must set up the type of infrastructure that is necessary to transmit a strong signal to their users, and most often this IT equipment cannot be manufactured locally. It must be imported from elsewhere.
As a reseller who has the materials they need for conducting their business, you are an asset to them. There are however many complications associated with shipping sensitive materials and dual-use goods to foreign countries. To begin with, every country has their own specific set of rules, regulations and customs law, a single misstep in the application process can cause heavy delays, potentially soiling your relationship with these new clients. Additionally, there are many documents to prepare that must be completed correctly the first time to ensure compliant clearance. These include but are not limited to permits, licences, freight delivery waybills, and commercial invoices.
Preparing all the necessary paper work can be an involved undertaking, however by hiring a global distributions partner that can act as your importer of record, you can rest assured that your shipment will be cleared in under 10 days. As soon as you find an importer of record you will be harnessing the expertise of professionals who will accurately file all the paperwork you need on your behalf, and apply for all the applicable permits to keep your shipments moving.
