Logistics

International trade can be an incredibly complex endeavor. Not only do you have to arrange to get goods from one country to another via some combination of ocean, air, truck, and rail, you’ve got to be familiar with all of the trade regulations and laws that affect commerce between the two (or more) countries in question. You’ve also got to be able to communicate with your counterparties in the other country, doing business across language barriers which may range from mildly confusing to impenetrable. Finally, participants in international trade don’t benefit from many of the legal protections that domestic consumers take for granted, leaving the buyer exposed to potentially catastrophic loss if something goes wrong, even if it’s not their fault.
