Navigating the import export regulations can be complex and problematic – especially within the field of high value, large scale IT equipment. Even large, multinational corporates may not have the expertise and knowledge of the intricate procedures and compliance requirements established within the various countries in which they do business.

TecEx, however, offers seamless and hassle-free import export services to industry leaders in the technology space looking to simplify their international business logistics. We are the experts in import and export compliance and assist our clients in shipping their networking goods to more than 200 countries and territories.

What is the difference between importing and exporting?

Importing refers to bringing in foreign goods or services into a country and exporting refers to sending out goods or services to a foreign country. During the process of shipping goods internationally, there must be both an importing and exporting party. For example, a router manufacturer in China could export their routers to an IT equipment distributor based in Chicago in the United States. The IT equipment distributor would be importing the foreign Chinese goods and is therefore known as the importing party or Importer of Record and the manufacturer of the routers is therefore the exporting party or known as the Exporter of Record.

What are some of the difficulties with importing and exporting networking equipment and why would this affect my business?

In each country there are specific procedures and processes for bringing in and sending out goods to and from foreign countries. For networking goods however, there is much grey area around shipping requirements as there is no straight forward and uniform method that is internationally utilised. Therefore, each shipment in and out of various regions and countries must be dealt with individually – making it time consuming and laborious. Shipping technology components requires extremely specific compliance documentation and permits in order to meet import and export requirements, without which goods could get stuck in customs indefinitely – hindering productivity and resulting in a substantial cost to global businesses.
