Importing A4 paper from Thailand


#1

Im new into this field and have recently found a supplier for A4 paper in Thailand.
All talks are done.
Following are some points.
It involes importing a A4 paper in a 20 FCL, 20 ft Container.
We are in CIF agreement @0.4 USD per ream at Karachi port from Thailand.

  1. What it extra include (any custom duty per container/clearance charges per container/other taxes per container?
  2. Furthermore i need containenr to be delivered to islamabad. Approximate expense for it?
  3. Is it beneficial to be in CIF (as per above) rather than FOB.
  4. Is it good business to start
  5. Do i need some extra information from supplier.

Here is a brief explanation for us not handling A4 paper, all items that are FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) are highly competitive, and most of the established importers in these fields, have very long experience in handling and importing them, it’s impossible they are ever going to ask us for a quote, they are specialist in their field more than us, over the period of many years, whenever a new comer wants to enter into a highly competitive market of FMCG and A4 falls into that, we have worked with them to prepare feasibility, spending endless hours to work it out … however at the end of the day, it won’t be feasible for a small/new importer, even if we decrease our margins in shipping/clearance down to pennies. So you can guess A4 paper is imported in hundreds of containers each month into Pakistan, and no matter what quote we provide you it’s never going to work out for you. Most of these importers are established, been involved in this business for decades, and each of them import it in ‘Bulk Volume’ like 10-40 containers a month. Trust that clarifies.
