Exporting in a Global Marketplace

Instead of loading your Made in the USA or Made in CA products on cargo ships bound for countries eager to buy high quality goods, too many manufacturers are leaving the rewards of global trade to competitors. If you are a manufacturer seeking to maximize your business growth and improve your bottom line, you might consider exporting.  We know it can be an overwhelming task, but CMTC is here to assist in the following areas: 

  • Determining whether exporting is RIGHT for your company
  • Getting started in exporting
  • Integrating the export process in your business operation
  • Managing the global logistics process
  • Assisting you with your export business growth
  • Identifying obstacle(s) to export sales growth
