Service in international tradings
With an annual export volume of 1130 bn Euros (2012), Germany is one of the world's biggest exporting nations. Goods of German origin are in great demand worldwide. Many of the manufacturers are not directly represented on overseas markets. So they use the Services of German export trading companies for selling their products abroad. German export trading companies are acting as intermediaries between manufacturers and potential customers worldwide; offering information on German high-quality goods, the ways open to purchases and explaining the modern skills of foreign trade business.
