Dollar Free Fall
What does a declining dollar do for you? American products are cheaper this year than last in nations whose money has become more valuable in relation to the dollar. The downturn of this year is different than those of 80's or 90's. It would be ironic to miss this opportunity to expand internationally today. You will miss an outstanding opportunity if you do not take advantage of this momentum built up today in Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East by addressing their market needs. This enthusiasm in other countries opens a door to those who can take advantage and deliver the American products in various markets internationally.

 

Finally, your search is over at Concord, we are one stop shop for the business owners for nearly 25 years. The American made merchandise is lot cheaper and lot more affordable and there is no question about the quality and reliability of the American made products.

Every importer, exporter, wholesaler, distributor, retailer and reseller knows that American merchandise is a major contributor in boosting their bottom line. Our international customers where not able to accomplish this before because of high cost of American products but now these products are very competitive in the global market.


The Dollar Value
The reduction in US Dollar value has made so may economist in the world worried but this is a great news for our international customers. As the dollar falls to the all time low against the major currencies, the more opportunities are created for business owners through out the world. As the value of the dollar declines, it makes U.S. produced goods cheaper and more competitive when compared to foreign produced goods. For years we have been successful in exporting and in some years over 70% of our business was export to other countries and now days we are going to see the highest benefit from this declining dollar. What is happening in world economy is having direct effect increasing the demand for our merchandise and product reduction and afford ability of our merchandise. Increase of oil prices has increased income of oil producing countries such and Middle East and Venezuela and Mexico, this event had direct increase in the middle class and afford ability. Also technology and education and has increased the income of some other countries such as China, India, Vietnam and this effect has increase the middle class in those countries which is again increase in their afford ability and spending ability of the income which again has positive effect increase of demand in American merchandise.

Why should I buy imported merchandise from Los Angeles!
In these 25 years so many customers ask us over and over why we should they buy the imported merchandise from Concord, isn't�t that cheaper to buy from China directly and cut the middle man and the cost?

 

These are some reason why it is more reason able to buy from us:

A. Expertise: Been in business for so many years has given us the accumulation of the experience and knowledge which make us more expert in purchasing and what to buy and what not to. There are so many items which will not sell and our research team has identified those items for last 25 years. The customer may not be aware of those items and the experience is the only way of eliminating the mistake.

B. Shipping Hub: Los Angeles is the depot of merchandise, for this reason the freight charges to Los Angeles is more reasonable in so many cases compare to other countries.

C. Negotiation Power: Because of our buying power we are able to buy and get better price on quantity price compare to others.

D. Variety: We have over 10,000 item in stock and customer needs to buy variety of the merchandise to sell and you have the advantages to load your container with so many different items. We have seen some time the customer have 500 to 1,000 items in one container and if they want this variety in any other country and be able to load in one container it is impossible considering each item is coming from different countries and different manufacturer and consolidation of these variety is practically impossible and so expensive and increase the cost so high which is not feasible to do.

E. Cost Factor: Even if you are able to buy all merchandise directly then the cost of importation and freight is so high and filing for custom and getting release for each item is so high which make it near impossible but when you buy all in one shipment the filing for release of custom and freight would be so reasonable.

F. Simple: Importing merchandise to USA is easy and there is not much custom duty on item and some times even it is duty free for preferred countries therefore you are not being taxes double. In some cases the import duty is like 2% which in $0.50 item the duty is $0.01 which is so minimal.
