Trade Business

Has anyone done any trade, whether import or export, domestic or international?
My friend and I are starting a business. We have done quite a bit of research, but like anything, you can never have too much information. So any helpful hints from anyone that has been in the business would be nice.

Hi Daniel,

I'm a bit late in replying, applied to be a user and then was busy and running around after it came thru. Anyway, I have some experience in import/export with fish and seafood products, spent most of my career in that field although I am now an instructor at a community college. I'd be glad to chat with you, don't know if I could be of any help or not but could maybe suggest some resources or who to talk to.

Will send you a note 'offline' with contact info.

Good luck!

Thanks. I got your note and will try to give a call sometime this week. Of course you will be of help, any information is better than none. I think at this point, our main concern is trying to find a seller and how to know they are legit. We already have a buyer and banker to front the money. Smile I think the only other thing is finding a shipper, but that, I would assume is probably a little easier to find and verify.
