Princeton, New Jersey (PRWEB) June 25, 2008 -- OMDCnet, a global trade and international business information portal, today announced the launch of Global Trade Advisor , an on-demand global business information service. The specialized research service is designed to assist individuals and companies involved with international business in finding answers to global trade questions and related issues.
"Having worked in international trade for over 25 years, it frustrated me that a professional information service was not readily available to help small and mid-sized companies get answers to questions about global business and world trade," said Mr. White, Director of Global Operations. "Our idea was to create an outsourced, on-demand information source providing help with, answers to, advice on, and insight into global business and world trade."
Five typical examples of information requests:
1. A manufacturer in China seeks a list of importers and/or distributors in the U.S. for a particular industry sector
2. A Belgian importer is looking for product lines for distribution in Benelux countries and needs assistance in locating the best new products from the U.S. market
3. A retail group in Brazil wants research conducted on new brands carried by large U.S. retail chains
4. A sales representative in South Africa needs to know the leading solar product manufacturers to contact for representation in his home market
5. A new-to-export manufacturer seeks advice on the best practices in exporting
Other questions could involve government regulations, country risk, company profiles, trade tariffs, logistics, etc.
The most unique aspect of Global Trade Advisor is the range of research provided, from answering single questions to more complex multi-question projects that could require days to complete.
Another key aspect of the service is the use of premium information sources to conduct international business research. As needed, Global Trade Advisor accesses and conducts research through premium fee-based sources. "The information available through free general online Internet searches usually does not provide the depth of company and market intelligence available through our premium sources," said Mr. White.
All customers receive an estimate of the time and cost to answer their global business question or complete the research project.
The core Global Trade Advisor target audience is executives at manufacturing companies, importers, exporters, retail chains, sales representatives, bankers, freight providers, trade associations, government trade organizations and others responsible for or involved with global trade.
OMDCnet is a global trade and international business information portal and member community owned and operated by Overseas Market Development Corporation.
