Although, all global supply chains can be considered fair, but some global supply chains are more equitable than others. In some places, the procedures for shipping goods worldwide are well-established, standardized, and comparatively simple. Others, however, require more complex planning because transporting goods from one country to another is not the company’s primary goal but a necessity that makes it possible. They are far from it. ‘Faraway’ sums it up perfectly. Different countries follow different rules and regulations.
Companies with ambitions for worldwide growth must pass through the global IT supply chain to achieve that growth.
Most companies concentrating on clients’ technological demands have skills focused on precisely that technology.
VARs, SIs, and CSPs usually require some assistance as they venture into uncharted territory where waves of red tape will smother them.
Costs will sneak up as it turns out that the most straightforward aspect of the IT project gets more complicated. Taking emergency measures that were not initially planned for can be required. There may be a need for practical abilities, which in other comparable ventures, were never required. Everything is dependent on the participating countries. It all depends on having people on board who are prepared to use their connections and local knowledge; in other words, “roll up their shirtsleeves” and get things done.
Investment in expansion, not in administration
Vendors’ application of national trading laws could occasionally cause issues. For instance, U.S.-based companies are used to favorable discounts as their prior expenses are considered. But they will not receive such a discount when they need to ship equipment to another country due to country-specific trading rules.
Optimal action to take when issues emerge
The worldwide IT supply chain is our home. We engage in it daily, with thousands of global deployment projects yearly. Most of them run without a hitch, thanks to our expertise. It also brings us in direct contact with the danger that delays and overruns will have on a project’s budget and schedule. Our area of expertise is managing such risks, minimizing them, and demonstrating that everything will work out at every turn. We guarantee that it does.
We ensure that our project solution makes everything move along solid and trustworthy tracks, starting from the initial order and then preparing goods for foreign shipment and everything that goes with it. Our solution entails navigating the complexity of customs and import/export quirks in every country, and it frequently entails a full IOR, i.e., Importer of Record service where we carry out:
• Pre-shipment documentation and product conformity inspections, import permits, and licensing
• Clearance of Customs cargo cleared via the necessary customs routes
• If needed, freight
• Payment of all customs fees and levies on your behalf in advance
• Delivery in the last mile to the customer
• Status updates on shipments
• Storage solutions
The secret to success
No matter where you want it to take place, we follow through to installation and testing in the country, combining global knowledge and local skills into a smooth, on-time, on-budget worldwide project while ensuring that any vendor discounts apply to your purchasing.
The key to success is people. Investing in people is and has always been our topmost investment focus. Collaboration among a group of highly experienced and talented individuals in the commercial, technical, and operational disciplines is indispensable to the success we accomplish for our customers.
Additionally, we have established enduring, mutually beneficial connections with a wide range of stakeholders, allowing our clients to take advantage of our top-notch work and their creative energy and inventive solutions.
The people element
We offer a worldwide network of partners and associates who uphold our reputation of going beyond the extra mile. We do not keep office hours simply because they are office hours. We do not become discouraged if we do not see a quick profit. For us, long-lasting relationships and trust are not about that. They emphasize doing the right thing, taking responsibility for each project and its components, working together as a team, and providing everyone and every customer with access to any specialized expertise at any time.
At our company, “doing the right thing” is performing honorably in a way that makes you proud of your contribution. It entails paying close attention to details because the global IT supply chain is overrun by the requirement for “attention to detail.”
