Commercial Shelter Mexico
Are you looking for export markets for your products?
International markets are more open than ever, and the internet makes it very easy to start communications and negotiations from miles away, even in other countries. Free trade agreements like USMCA has created the opportunity of a bigger market for US products.
Now that you have decided that it is time to grow internationally by exporting into Mexico, we need to cover a couple of challenges that may stand in the way. Removing these potential roadblocks is vital to the success of your new export project.
The Commercial Shelter service supports US companies to soft-land in Mexico, allowing them to have a legal entity in the country that can act as their importer of record and trading company. This way they can start selling their products immediately, without legal complications or having to hire a local team and establish a business in the country.
Customs regulations in Mexico are complicated, and the legal system is different than in the US (Civil Law vs Common Law). Yet this shouldn’t come in the way of your project moving forwards. Mexican companies recognize the quality and value of US made products, and are really interested in buying them, don’t let the difference in business cultures persuade you otherwise!
Sometimes, there can be misunderstandings during the negotiation process, that is why we support you from day one, to create a positive business environment and a transaction that can be successfully concluded for both parties.
The import-export logistics can be a challenge mainly because the selling US company does not understand the legal and packing regulations at Mexican customs. These customs authorities are demanding, and often the importer in Mexico has no idea either, so the transaction becomes very difficult, not to mention expensive for both parties involved! What’s more, both parties will be less enthused to do business in the future.
That is why it’s important to use our risk- and stress-free process, to allow the trade to go smoothly. This ensures that there will be more business deals ahead, and allows both parties to focus on what they do best to make, market and sell great products!
We offer an integrated trading solution that will help your company to successfully start in the Mexican market. The main steps are: initial market development planning, contracts, permits, customs, regulations processing, international logistics, distribution and order fulfilment, and customer experience center for sales order processing.
