What’s the main cause for a cross border operation to go wrong?

The main problem in the cross-border operation resides in the lack of coordination and proactivity of all the parties involved. Not more not less. The end result will depend of how well coordinated both parties an of their disposition to work together.

Most of the time in this kind of operations the exporting part hires on their side people and parties that support the crossing and on the other side the importing part does the same, and it’s a reality that both of the hired parties wont talk to each other to come to a clean process since is “not their job to mediate” or “I was hired to do only this part”. That attitude is the one that will cause problems in the operation and fail.

Where do the problems begin?

The problems begin when the hired team has a bad communication, its very common to see how the pieces in the process interact with other figures but not talk to each other, and in processes that take place in just a few hours, not paying attention on the immediate needs will cause everything to get stuck, where at least the 7 individuals involved in the operation keep charging for their services, getting stuck will cost you 50, 70, 100 dollars per hour, and more if something else comes up.
