Types of export goods

Export goods are classified into three categories based on their export license:

Authorized goods: Goods that do not require permits such as human health certificates, livestock and vegetable standards to pass the customs procedures of exporting goods in compliance with the laws are called authorized export goods.

Conditional Goods: goods that require a customs license for export. These types of goods will be able to be exported after the approval of the relevant ministries and sending from the Ministry of Commerce to the customs, but the exporter does not need to refer to the ministry to obtain a license.

Prohibited goods: The last category is related to goods whose export has been declared prohibited based on specific reasons and conditions or the enactment of some laws, and they are not allowed to export.

Types of good export

The export of goods has different types, which include the following:

Definite export

In this kind of export, goods are exported outside the customs territory of the country for the purpose of sale or consumption, and there is no need to pay customs duties, commercial interest, duties and taxes by a natural or legal person.

Temporary export

If the goods are exported in order to participate in international exhibitions, and if the goods are not sold, it is possible to return them to the customs office of origin by the trader, it is called temporary export. In this case, there is no need to carry out the customs procedure for importing these types of goods. In the temporary export of goods, the exporter pays an amount as a deposit to the customs, which will be returned after the goods are returned to the customs of origin.

Direct export

When an export company or a person exports goods to the destination country without an intermediary, it is actually a direct export, and in this case, the exporter will be responsible for carrying out the entire process related to the export of goods. One of the most important advantages of direct export of goods is earning more profit (in other words, no other person or company will share in your profit). Among other advantages of direct export of goods, we can mention the establishment of commercial relations. With this type of exporting, after a while, you will have business relations with numerous foreign and domestic individuals in this field. You can also learn the entire process of exporting goods from A to Z. In the direct export of goods, you need an export department and recruitment of human resources, and you must also consider costs such as the cost of staying in a foreign country. Of course, more time is needed to go through the steps of exporting goods.

Indirect export

In the indirect method, an intermediary is used for the export of goods, who will export the goods with the help of commercial companies and in fact entrusts the export process to another company. In this method of exporting goods, the earned profit is divided between the intermediary and the exporter. In indirect export, the export costs of goods will be greatly reduced. You can also use the experiences of professionals in this field. Among the disadvantages of this method, we can point out the lack of direct control over the price, lack of direct interaction with the customer, and earning lower profit.
