Export broker services in over 30 countries around the world

An export broker is a firm or an individual responsible for bridging the gap between the seller and the buyer. It functions as an intermediary between the organization which owns the goods or services meant for export and the overseas organization which intends to import that goods and services. It facilitates the transaction between the two concerned parties. It also undertakes the smooth facilitation of the perfect shipment of the goods or services.

We find the distributor, reseller or client for you

Agents, distributors, dealers or franchisees are essential to get exposure in the market. We will not only find them, but also make sure they will sell for you. If you don’t have that much experience in the new country, we will typically do the following:

  1. We draft a short market verification report in which we estimate market size, show your main competition and list the most important distribution channels that you can use.
  2. Together with you we decide on the right approach and on the distribution channels that you want to focus on. We pay a lot of attention to your profiling in this market.
  3. We make a long-list with potential partners or clients. We approach these companies to see whether they are interested in working with you. We report on all contacts and responses.
  4. In general this leads to two or three suitable and interested companies. We will set up a first call or meeting between you and these companies. You can take it from there, or we can assist you further.

We can also be your agent or local representative

After we know your company better and have identified potential partners, we can also act as your agent or representative in the market. For example if you have a product that you want to sell through multiple distributors or in case there is a language barrier. We can take care of various activities:

  • Assisting you in the negotiation process with potential distributors or clients, until a contract is signed and the first order is placed.
  • Managing your distributors, do store checks and discuss on how to increase the sales of your products. We can distinguish between excuses and real problems and ensure effective communication.
  • Coordinating your local marketing activities, based on a plan that we will jointly develop.

More cost-efficient than hiring your own staff

You can see us as the temporary and part-time extension of your team. Hiring us gives the following benefits:

  • We are short-term available and productive from day 1.
  • No need to set up an office abroad and hire somebody full time.
  • No search agency fees and training costs.

In the first months we always work on a fixed price basis, with clear deliverables. A partner search may range from € 5,000 to € 20,000 based on the country and what you want to sell there. There is always a payment term at the project start, to ensure your commitment and ours. After that, we can work as your agent or local representative (partly) on a commission basis.

We would be happy to provide you with a detailed proposal. Just contact one of our team members, or use the button below and let us contact you!
