If you have a limited number of staff and they are already thinly stretched in operating your local business, it will be difficult to take on a new and serious commitment to exporting.  Completing the following brief questionnaire will help assess the level of your export commitment.

3.  Financial Resources

 

The commitment to export will require additional finances over and above the financial requirements needed to service your local market. If you are currently struggling with cash flow in order to keep your domestic operation going, you may have trouble finding the resources needed to start exporting. Your business may have to accommodate a time lag between when you start promoting your products abroad, and finally achieving your first order. You may even have to do the first few orders at very little or no profit.

5. Capacity to supply / manufacture

 

Companies wanting to develop new markets must be sure they have the capacity to supply any orders placed. Common problems include offering products to buyers who are likely to place orders far larger than the enterprise can ever supply or where enterprises export excess capacity in times of a poor economic climate at home, but then have to sacrifice their export markets once the local economy picks up again. The cost and commitment required to develop an export market is too high to just exit because you have run out of capacity.
