For companies seeking to develop their export activities into Europe, Africa and the Middle East, servicing business generated from their sales teams in each country can be a challenging problem.
Shipping goods from their global head quarters is often not the most efficient solution. Not only can it significantly increase the shipping cost per order but, for companies based outside the EU, it can also cause delays and additional costs as each consignment is cleared through customs.
Holding stock in each regional sales offices is not an ideal solution either. Often these offices are not geared up for product handling and dispatch. It wastes both expensive office space and more importantly sales office time that could be used more productively in business development.
