When we talk to companies importing goods from abroad, their first and biggest concern is whether the goods are delivered according to the agreed standard. There are two main things you can do to ensure this. First, you can research the supplier.
Next, make sure you negotiate the contract so that there is full agreement on what the minimum standard is and that your final price covers everything - production, packaging, transport and import taxes.
The second import-related concern has more to do with economy: Do you have the resources to fulfil your obligations? You need to ensure you have the necessary liquidity to meet your supplier’s payment deadlines.
Finally, there are more general concerns - call it the known unknowns - all the things you know could go wrong, but of which you do not necessarily have an overview. The issues may range from the manufacturer’s safety and environmental conditions to the liability for damage caused by the imported goods. These are things you should consider before importing.
