Starting an export business



I am a 19 year old Maritime business & Law student I understand how the basics of the industry work. I am interested in export/import.

I understand exporting and importing but want to know how to start a export business if you dont have your own product?

My struggle is the start up. I don’t know were to start, how do I go about exporting other peoples products or is it best to have a product of your own?

Any help will be grateful.



Thanks for your question. Are you able to provide any more information about the nature of the business you are trying to start up and sector you might plan to operate in. Have you got any particular products/services in mind?
