Apart from being a leading supplier of reliable Dutch cars, N&L Cars is also a careful intermediary for the transfer to new ownership. Meaning, we are your business partner for both offer and demand. The international export for Dutch cars has increased substantiously alongside the European demand for young, second-hand cars of superior quality. Dutch cars are of particular interest as they are not exposed to extreme conditions and regular maintenance is carried out with care and precision. To serve the Western European international import market, Nijland & Leussink have established a special export division called N&L Cars International.

    I have been thinking about and am pretty keen on starting a import export business, but I have no idea where to even start. If anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

    Since you’ve never been in th import/export business before, I would strongly recommend that you talk to a business counselor before you do anything especially spend money. You have to determine whether you’ll start a web based business or one with a store front. I’d call the local office of SCORE (go to http://www.score.org and input your zip code to find the chapter nearest you), the advice is FREE. Ask for counnselor with import /export expertise and they’ll try their very best to match you with the right person.

    The counselor at SCORE will most likely advise you to write a business plan which is very good advice because it will force you to dig out all of the start up details and the costs of starting an import/export business and force you to also understand all of the aspects of this business including the customers you’ll concentrate on (your market ) and how you’ll go after them.

    You’ll need to register the business with your state controller’s office and make sure that you have any city and county licenses if any are needed where you live. All of this will come out in a business plan.

    Good Luck

    My Fiancee lives in the Philippines, and is interested in having a small import export business between the USA and the Philippines. We’re looking for resources to guide us in the proper business procedures.

    Books, Websites, Ebooks, or any resources would be greatly appreciated, especially if you have experience with them.

    Thank you!
    Currrently product details are unknown. My fiancee is visiting with family, friends, and business owners looking at possible products. Also, they are looking at Ebay to determine the sellability of products.

    I am importing a few products from the Philippines. Shipping cost is high, and a large box of items could set you back P15,000-25,000 pesos (around $300-$500). If you talk of crates, so much more expensive. I suggest your fiance, aside from looking for products, actually start looking for brokers that can help them.

    In my experience, eBay is not the best marketplace for them, especially if you talk of handicraft items. I’ve never had much luck selling Philippine products on ebay. Buyers are not familiar with the products, there’s little demand for it. Shell jewelry boxes from Cebu for example, with matching picture frames are great looking – but I can never sell them on the first listing. Sometimes it takes me 5-10 relists to dispose of the item. I even tried selling papaya soap which is very popular in the Philippines, only to find limited buyers on ebay.

    The only thing that sells fast for me from the Philippines are vintage Philippine postcards (circa early 1900s), freshwater and South Sea pearl jewelries, and antique items (Ifugao, Maranaw, and other ethnic tribes).

    Thailand is a better place to get products. I have no problem selling pewter liquor holders from Thailand or their jewelries. I also import a lot of benjarong jars, and I can sell them real fast. Even batik paintings sell faster.

  15. kingkong says:

    Do you think that an Import/Export business that will export products from Panama to the Caribbean Islands and possibly south America will be a good idea? It will be based in Panama and in 3 caribbean Islands and south america. Does it sound feasible?

  16. Seryan says:

    Yes. Using the Free Trade Zone in Colon, (the second largest in the world – after Hong Kong) you can drop ship in container sized shipments more efficiently and at less cost than any other port to other port cities in the Caribbean or South America.

    (You might also consider shipping from Colon to Limon, Costa Rica’s only Caribbean Port. Costa Rica and Panama have just signed a free trade agreement.)

    BUT…it does depend on what kind of goods you are selling and what the market is in each of the three islands that you wish to sell to. Will you be competitive? Do you have a product that they want?

    Do you have sales reps in each island? Or a sales rep who will travel and sell. Nothing can happen until you have a sales order. And it takes shoe leather to get the order when you’re new.

    After you get buy-sell relations started, and get return orders, you will have a stable business.

    There are many of this type operating out of Colon, taking advantage of the location and the Free Trade aspect.

    Good luck! It’s a good idea.

  18. Rhythm says:

    Handlooms and leather goods are the best to export from india.

    you need a export license and a bank account where you can accept forex.

    You also need to look for buyers, list yourself of alibaba.com or google business and people and pottential buyers will contact you.
