The company handles the entire process, allowing its clients to focus on commercial growth without worrying about legal and administrative complexities.

How will we do it? Through Aerodoc Score.

The Aerodoc Score is a unique industry feature that simplifies understanding the ease of importing with a straightforward rating. The score ranges from ‘A’ (import-friendly environment) to ‘D’ (characterized by obstacles, high rates, and discretion), providing a quick overview of trade conditions.

Inside the Aerodoc Score

Knowing information about a destination before importing technology is essential. One of the first aspects to consider is the language, as documentation, contracts, and technical specifications must be accurately translated and adapted to avoid misunderstandings and ensure regulatory compliance.

Additionally, it is crucial to understand the country’s total exports and imports. This data provides insight into the trade volume and the significance of the technology sector in the local economy. It can also give an overview of demand and competition.

Another essential indicator is the GDP ranking. A high GDP can indicate a market with greater purchasing power and higher demand for advanced technological products.

Each country has its specific requirements for import permits and licenses. Knowing these administrative procedures is crucial to avoid delays and ensure products comply with all local regulations.

The average tariff and customs duties are economic factors that can significantly influence the final cost of imported products. A company must calculate these additional costs to assess the profitability of entering the market and to set competitive prices.

“Having precise data for each country is crucial, as the same product may have different tariffs and costs depending on the market. Our customers need information about duties and taxes, import costs, and the licenses and permits required for each country they plan to enter,” states Maria Carolina Muller, VP of Business Development.

Muller explains, “Aerodoc aims to provide a comprehensive solution encompassing all the aforementioned details. For instance, we have successfully executed projects in over 100 countries, meticulously managing all necessary bureaucracy, costs, and formalities in each respective country.

Awareness of any prohibitions in the destination market is also essential. Some countries may restrict certain types of technology for security, public health, or economic policies, limiting the range of devices and equipment that can be imported.

Market specifics such as consumer preferences, technological infrastructure, and government policies also play a crucial role. Understanding these particularities allows a company to adapt its market and product strategy to meet local needs and expectations.

Having a deep knowledge of these factors enables a company to make informed decisions, avoid legal and financial issues, and maximize opportunities for success in international expansion.
