Export Readiness Assessment

Find out if your company is ready to do business abroad.

What do successful export operations have in common?

  • Success in the domestic market. The product or service has a proven profit margin and there is ongoing demand.
  • The capacity to produce more of the product or service. The business has the adequate staff and resources to fulfill large orders that may come from overseas markets.
  • A comprehensive marketing plan that includes international goals, and outreach with campaigns and techniques that are sensitive to cultural issues.
  • Adequate logistical support and trustworthy partners that can help with compliance management. (Freight forwarders are familiar with export rules and regulations and can assist with classifications and paperwork.)
  • Payment collection methods that account for foreign currency conversion rates and methods for qualifying credit customers.
  • A management team that supports the exporting efforts on all levels. Managers must understand the risk and be willing to invest finances, staff and time to export initiatives.
