International Trade and the Successful Intermediary reveals how intermediaries can safely and effectively guarantee they are paid commission in lucrative commodity trades. Davide Papa and Lorna Elliott explain how intermediaries should conduct a deal from start to finish, whilst adhering to the laws and rules of international trade and maintaining control over the transaction at all times. The explosion of the internet has created tens of thousands of trading houses and independent home-based brokers all seeking to buy or sell commodities to one another. Businesses may spend considerable time and resources evaluating the merits or otherwise of available brokers. International Trade and the Successful Intermediary is designed to give independent intermediaries, potential buyers, procurement agents, mandates, lawyers, bankers and companies the fundamental skills to conduct business in the international trade arena, while increasing their knowledge and confidence to secure commission arising out of successful deals. Using real scenarios, model documents and straightforward language the book dispels the many myths relating to internet trading procedures and explains the rules and laws that must be adhered to when conducting import/export transactions.

Crude Oil and the Successful Intermediary the Export and Import of Petroleum Based Products by Intermediaries

With all of the news surrounding climate change and the need to reduce emissions, renewable energy is gaining a stronghold and there is a sharp focus on the reporting of energy usage and carbon emissions. As such, it seems that the petroleum industry is heading for a steep decline. The reality is, however, that renewable energy is not cheap nor is it suitable for heavy industry use; two factors which drive a viable economy. As more people take up alternative and renewable types of energy sources, as obtained from the sun or wind, it the price of localised coal and fuel-powered electricity generation will increase, in direct correlation with the decreased use of so-called 'dirty energy'. Yet, Davide Papa contends that there is no other practical form of energy that could match the energy output of crude oil pound per pound. The decline in the trading of crude oil and associated fuels is not upon us in the near or distant future, if ever and the marketplace is ripe for informed intermediaries to source and sell petroleum based products for a long time yet. Davide sets out a basic, uniform standard of practice and explains, in a clear and straightforward language, the rules and laws that must be adhered to when conducting business in the complex export/import arena, thus guiding intermediaries, brokers, agents, buyers and sellers who are attempting to deal in commodities, including petroleum based products, to success. The insight Davide provides has cross-industry relevance and additionally will appeal to a host of professional entities such as intermediaries, lawyers, scientists, engineers, accountants, corporate and home based traders.

A Short Guide to Customs Risk

Genre: Business & Economics

The historic growth in world trade, large container ships and information technology have triggered profound changes in international trade. A few years ago, customs officers at the border were meticulously checking goods and documents before releasing a shipment to the trader. A business could be confident that a shipment that had cleared customs complied with all applicable regulations. Today, to reduce congestion and give the trade quick access to their goods, customs have introduced risk management principles and a large number of shipments clear customs automatically. Controls have moved from the border to the trader’s premises and it is during site visits that customs officers check the business compliance records. Moving from frontier checks to audit based controls has transferred a high level of responsibility and risk to the trader. It is now the duty of the trader to identify and report any error or irregularity and to keep an impeccable audit trail from initial quotation to receipt of payment. For the business, failing to provide satisfactory compliance records will result in delayed shipments and serious disruption in the supply chain. This will in turn impact on financial performance indicators such as Days in Inventory, Days Sales Outstanding and of course Cash Flow. The business will also have to endure in depth customs audits during which customs officers will inspect each step of the audit trail disrupting day-to-day business operation. Errors uncovered during these audits will yield heavy financial penalties and a customs debt. Ultimately, customs risk will impact on shareholders value. Customs and finance reporting should receive the same level of attention. However, if all companies check carefully their tax returns, only a few check their import or export declarations with the same scrutiny. Managing customs risk is often seen as a cost centre but it is also a source of competitive advantage. A sound customs management can reduce or remove customs duties, generate savings, and generally improve cash flow using the many customs procedures available to the compliant trader. Help is at hand, A Short Guide to Customs Risk will enable you to make informed decisions, and includes a foreword by the Head of the World Customs Organization: Kunio Mikuriya.

The Evolution of U S Trade Intermediaries

Release Date: 1992
Genre: Business & Economics

This book fills a gap in our knowledge of the practice of international marketing. The functions provided by international trade intermediaries (ITIs), on behalf of manufacturers unable or unwilling to assume them has been studied before. However, their evolution in the context of the challenging international environment, which is traced and analyzed here by Anne C. Perry, has not been previously addressed. New empirical data on ITIs and their survival strategies is reported, and a conceptual model of their evolution based on organization, marketing, and international-business theories is developed. This model represents a first major step toward a theory of international trade intermediation in the United States. First, Perry introduces (1) the evolutionary model, which guided the field study of ITIs and formed the basis of the questionnaire and (2) a comprehensive conceptual framework that considers ITIs in terms of actors, their environment, their processes (activities), their structure (organization), and their function (contribution). The new business environment, its effects on ITIs, and their strategic adaptations are analyzed next. Changes in the products carried, the markets served, and the services provided by ITIs are investigated--while challenges to the U.S. industry of international trade intermediation are assessed. Successful and unsuccessful ITI strategies are contrasted to draw concrete implications for practitioners. Further implications for policymakers and researchers are also discussed.

Strategy development in humanitarian NGO positioning and the rise of FCOs

Genre: Business & Economics

As competition over donations for humanitarian aid projects intensifies, traditional German NGOs come under additional pressure from an unlikely side: A new breed of aggressively expanding market entrants monopolizes distribution channels, thus obtaining a significant market share. Lacking any own aid projects, however, these organizations distribute the raised donations to traditional NGOs. This unusual set-up leaves NGO executives searching for a strategic response: While the new competitor’s funding is clearly a welcome treat, the competitive aspect is much less pleasing. This study revisits contemporary approaches to positioning strategy formulation, deducing a systematization of fundraising campaign organizations (FCOs) and offering helpful recommendations for NGO executives.

Author: Mike W. Peng
Publisher: Quorum Books
ISBN: 1567201520
Release Date: 1998-01-01
Genre: Business & Economics

What determines the success or failure of U.S. export intermediary firms, and how well (or badly) have they been doing? Have they really lowered the transaction costs for their clients, minimized agency costs, and acquired competitive capabilities in world trade? These questions, until now unasked and unanswered, are the critical ones studied by Mike Peng, based on his unique set of empirical research findings. Employing a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods, Peng provides definitive answers to these and other questions. His book will be an important resource for entrepreneurs and manufacturing executives seeking export intermediary services, government officials in charge of export promotion, and scholars and researchers throughout the field of international business and trade.

Entrepreneurship in International Trade

Author: James E. Rauch
ISBN: UCSD:31822028261840
Release Date: 2002
Genre: Economics

Motivated by evidence on the importance of incomplete information and networks in international trade, we investigate the supply of 'network intermediation.' We hypothesize that the agents who become international trade intermediaries first accumulate networks of foreign contacts while working as employees in production or sales, then become entrepreneurs who sell access to and use of the networks they accumulated. We report supportive results regarding this hypothesis from a pilot survey of international trade intermediaries. We then build a simple general-equilibrium model of this type of entrepreneurship, and use it for comparative statics and welfare analysis. One welfare conclusion is that intermediaries may have inadequate incentives to maintain or expand their networks, suggesting a rationale for the policies followed by some countries to encourage large-scale trading companies that imitate the Japanese sogo shosha
