All goods transported across the customs border of Russia are classified in accordance with the FEACN – Foreign Economic Activity Commodity Nomenclature in the form of ten-character codes. Each good is assigned a HS code, which is used in case of declaring and maintaining statistics of the Federal Customs Service. The HS code definition is necessary to analyze the FCS database for the interest categories of goods.
Customs statistics contain comprehensive information about each movement of goods across the customs border of Russia.
Based on the analysis of the FCS database, we generate a report on the required HS code for the previous 3 years. The report contains information about all deliveries of similar goods for import, volumes of deliveries, dynamics of changes in value and much more. We conduct preliminary negotiations and request prices from suppliers for criteria of the Client.
Analysis of the FCS data provides a list of countries producing the necessary goods. In order to find suppliers of similar goods who have no experience of deliveries to Russia and have not been included in the customs statistics for the last 3 years, we conduct research and analysis of foreign markets using the following sources:
Different search engines, mapping services, electronic trading platforms and social networks are popular in different countries.
As a result of the data analysis obtained from these sources a report about the foreign suppliers of similar goods who have no experience of deliveries to Russia and are not included in customs statistics is formed, and initial negotiations and a request for prices are conducted.
We contact only real buyers and get feedback about the product. We know how to identify a final buyer not only in Russia, but also in the countries where goods are sold.
We conduct a survey of real buyers on the topic:
As a result of collecting and analyzing all obtained data we select TOP 10 suppliers based on the Client’s task.
All potential suppliers are evaluated according to the following criteria:
Existing information systems allow to make a detailed analysis of the supplier’s company. The following parameters are evaluated during the supplier reliability check:
If the supplier turns out to be unreliable, this procedure is repeated with other companies from TOP 10 list.
We will arrange delivery of the goods samples to the Buyer for quality control or testing, if it is necessary.
Samples of goods require customs clearance like any other goods transported across the customs border of Russia.
We send samples by courier services or by vehicles.
The final stage of choosing a Russian supplier is the signing of a foreign trade contract between our company and a foreign buyer in two languages.
At the same time, we conclude a contract with a Russian supplier in accordance with the Russian Federation legislation. We have extensive experience and guarantee prompt resolution of disputes with Russian suppliers in pre-trial and judicial procedures in cases of improper fulfillment of contractual obligations by the supplier.
