The import export business is not just for large corporations. In fact, small— to mid-size businesses account for 97 percent of U.S. exporters, so an individual armed with the right information can get in on this enormous industry.
Billions of dollars in merchandise and goods are exchanged each day in the global marketplace, and these products are bought, sold, represented, and distributed somewhere in the world on a daily basis. Compared to other businesses, import export companies have a low start-up cost, which maximizes your earning potential with a small investment. You do not need any special license or degree; what you need to succeed is expert advice and a comprehensive guide to entering this industry, and How to Open & Operate a Financially Successful Import Export Business is your ticket to tapping into this market.
While providing detailed instruction and examples, Maritza Manresa details the basic concepts of the import export industry to help you navigate the maze of international trade policies and regulations. You will learn how to work with U.S. and foreign companies. You will also learn how to draw up a winning business plan. This book details the basic cost-control systems, commercial terms, and cultural issues, as well as the latest information on government regulations, tax laws, and customs requirements.
