Looking for help with Indian market entry

Question posted by Richard Banham, on behalf of Madera Solutions in LE16

I am a British exporter of printing media, the material is either obsolete, indent clearance or rejection however it's palletised and in original wrappers.

I am ideally looking to appoint a trusted local partner, distributor or even a customer who is close to the Indian market.

Can anyone signpost me or connect me with services, business support organisations, contacts etc to help me achieve Indian market entry?

Thank you.

Hi Richard
I have exported to India stationery, craft, hobby, and art materials in the past. I could help out but I would need more information.
What is the actual product ? Printing paper ? What grammage, size,packaging etc. I could then get in touch with some contacts to see what demand there might be. Is it on-going business ? You can contact me at gilio@exportadvisory.com
On the other hand when you ask about business support organisations then
UKTI can help you, including carrying out research for you to find specific buyers through their offices in India. They also have local International Trade Advisors in Leicester to talk to.

PETER BRIALEY, on behalf of STI GLOBAL LOGISTICS LTD in SS13.

Hi Richard,
I have a very good shipping and logistics agent in India who can put you in touch with clients or potential buyers. We take care of the shipping side of things from here.
We have weekly services into India so for further information email me on the below address.
A note on the goods description, if this is classed as Waste Paper be careful as there is a current issue with carriers in the fact that vessels are going out full and "waste" "Scrap" cargoes are not given any priority over bookings. Currently next vessels with space for this commodity are not until mid June...Be careful if another agent tells you different as you will get a good price but shipment wont be done till mid June usual excuses vessel delayed etc then you get a invoice for demurrage..
