  1. In order for a company to export, it must establish a foreign trade department.

  1. If the company does not plan to invest abroad, but only wants to carry out export activities, it should establish a foreign trade department.

  1. The department to be established should consist of expert personnel who have a good command of the export legislation, can follow customs procedures, conduct foreign market research and manage customer relations.

  1. The cost of establishing a foreign trade department of a company may vary depending on the size of the company, its export volume, the nature of the investments it has made or will make abroad, and the functions of the department.

 

  1. The cost of establishing a foreign trade department of a company may vary depending on the size of the company, its export volume, the nature of the investments it has made or will make abroad, and the functions of the department.

 

But in general, the elements that make up the cost of the department are:

  1. Staff salaries and social security expenses,
  2. Fixed expenses such as office rent, electricity, water, internet,
  3. Procurement of external services such as customs brokers, shipping companies, insurance companies,
  4. Marketing expenses such as market research, promotion, fair participation,
  5. Travel expenses such as travel, accommodation, visas.
  6. Fair, promotion, representation and hospitality expenses,

The cost of a company to establish a foreign trade department may vary depending on the size of the company and the volume of exports. To begin with, even if a staff member has started working with him and aims to export to a country, the cost of a staff member to the business for one year will be around 25,000 USD.

If this company wants to conduct market research in a country abroad, transportation, accommodation, car rental, subsistence and other expenses will be around 8-10,000 USD on average.

If this company wants to participate in the fair in a country abroad for market research, creating a customer portfolio, increasing brand awareness, stand, logistics, customs, transportation, accommodation, car rental, subsistence and other expenses will be around 30,000 USD on average.

 

Even if a company wants to cover these costs;

  1. Lack of expert personnel and financial resources,
  2. Network inadequacy,
  3. Lack of information on how to export,
  4. Lack of technical and infrastructure,

The international market faces many challenges such as a lack of marketing and market research.

96% of our SME-level companies in our country do not establish a foreign trade department due to the reasons mentioned below and high costs, and they have difficulty in exporting and/or postpone the possibility of exporting continuously due to costs.

Split Export Cost Input System

The Agri-Food Joint Cooperation Board-TAGOK has developed a system based on its members' sharing of export costs with the Split Export Cost Input System it has established.

TAGOK provides marketing, market research and foreign trade department services to its members so that they can export. TAGOK has created a CLUSTER SYSTEM (BIMG) based on its members' sharing of export costs.

In this system, members can exhibit their products in the concept of open fair for 365 days in the showrooms in the countries they want to export to, carry out transactions such as storage, face-to-face meetings with potential buyers, logistics, customs, insurance and reduce export risks. In addition, TAGOK carries out promotional and advertising activities to increase the brand awareness of its members. Thanks to these services, the export capacity and competitiveness of its members increase.

TAGOK is based on its members' sharing of export costs, the Split Export Cost Input System-BIMG

  1. The foreign trade department to be established by our companies to export reduces personnel costs by up to 10%, showroom, warehouse, marketing and other expenses by 6-8%,
