Whether you admit or not, goods produced in other countries specifically China or in another country are relatively cheaper than products produced in the US. For US exporters, this can be seen as a disadvantage or an advantage. If you are going to take this as a disadvantage then it is clear that US exporters will have difficulty in competing with low priced goods in the market.
In this world where customers and clients place high importance on pricing, US exporters might not be able to give low prices to their consumers. But on a positive note, price is not just the sole consideration. Quality is still an important factor. In this case, US exporters can definitely compete with foreign goods.
The challenge now for US exporters is to be able to produce goods that can compete not just in terms of quality but also in terms of price. For those who are manufacturing certain products, US exporters have to find alternatives when it comes to materials and other products needed to produce the final goods.
This is where the advantage comes in. Through the importation of other products, US exporters can definitely avail low cost materials that they can use to produce the products that they are going to export. The decision of US exporters to import goods from other countries would require them to have contacts of foreign suppliers and companies.
Reaching out to foreign trading networks can be really difficult. Considering the distance and the language barrier, the transactions will not be that easy. But with the help of a purchasing agent, US exporters do not have to spend a lot of time just to be able to find a quality and reliable international trading partner. Procurement services aim to help both parties to close business and trading deals much faster and more efficiently.
