White List – An introduction to importing goods from overseas

Understanding risk and liability

Importing goods, or buying products from overseas, opens a world of opportunity. Whether your motive is to reduce product costs or to introduce new products, there will often be advantages in seeking supply from other countries. The process of importing is not as difficult as it may seem, if you have a little knowledge and you choose the right freight forwarder.

This white paper outlines some of the important factors that you need to know during the import process, things that are different to just buying in the domestic market. Some of the subjects covered may seem confusing at first, but you will pick up more along the way. The ‘right’ freight forwarder will guide you along the way – helping you through the process is something we enjoy doing at Westbound Logistics .
