2. Could you please let me know the step by step process for the export business of paper ?
3. What documentation is required in the whole process/cycle ?
4. Which sea freight company is best to export paper from Europe to India and China ?
5. Which type of legal contracts should be done between Supplier and me/ Freight Company and me ?
