Exporting outside EU is easy

exportar-exportacion-export-international-internacional-fuera-out-ue-eu-european-union-01Are you thinking about exporting outside the European Union?

European Union treaties grant free circulation of most goods inside member countries borders. For practical purposes, this is like if there were no borders between member states, which makes it easier and quicker for international trade and transportation. This may be the reason behind the appearance of complication that lies in exportations outside the EU area, because every shipment and every country must be considered differently. This are some of the issues you must pay attention to when thinking about exporting outside the European Union.

Product specifications

We could fill hundreds of posts in this blog with what can be and what can't be exported to every single country in the world. But we think it is rather more efficient making a detailed study of your exportation and how it fits into the destination country's laws. This is clearly the must-do before starting any exportation. Maybe for your marketing strategy it makes lots of sense exporting delicious craft sausages to Australia. But there is a surprise for you: agrifood shipments to this country are seriously restricted. Better knowing this before than after, isn't it?

Make everything clear beforehand

Legislation in every country outside the EU may hinder your intention of exporting but there is something you must always take into consideration: the relationship with your customers and your intermediaries. It is key to state correctly the delivery conditions and risk transmisions accordingly with Incoterm, the key clauses in the contract between the importer and the exporter. This will settle who is responsible for the shipment on every part of the journey and in what terms they are.

We insist that a proper previous study and planification in this aspect is basic, because it is the way to avoid unexpected events. And the best way for that is to be always ready for it!

Maybe you don't need an exportation

It may not make sense economically to export to a country where you won't find distribution.

Your policy for outside European Union exportation must be inside a broader plan where you must decide how it is going to be done, how often and what goals you try to achieve. To sum up, exporting is much more than asking for a budget. It is asking the shipping frequency, the delivery conditions and the variables that must be kept constant during the journey (box position, temperature, etc.). We like handling export services outside the EU at middle or long term, because this way we can make them economically and environmentally sustainable. This is similar to choosing a guide to get indications for a trip: the longer the guide stays with you, the less chances of getting lost there are.

So, let us finish with this tip: look for a good partner who will be with you in your international project and remember that, in this choice, experience matters.
