Make Trade today lauched the Import handbook targeting Swedish small and medium sized businesses (SME). The handbook goes through what you as a company need to know to suceed with your imports. Together with a handful of Swedish business organisations Make Trade will be doing a road show this autumn targeting SME’s. We also hope the book will be helpful for the many foreign born entrepreneurs who start companies in Sweden, and where importing often is an important part of the business.
Today’s launch was done in Malmö in cooperation with Business Navigation in Sweden, IKF (the International Women’s Association) and Coompanion.
The Import handbook goes through the main critical areas for importing, like identifying and verifying your business model, managing purchasing and your supplier relationship, risk assessment, legal issues and best practices, logistics and documentation, customs procedures and regulations, ensuring sustainability and handling cultural differences. The handbook is co-financed by Tillväxtverket.
