At Zepol, we have a saying, ‘Who doesn’t like new business?’, and I can’t think of a company that would disagree. Many of Zepol’s customers use our trade data tools, TradeIQ™ and TradeView™, as resources for finding new business or discovering where to look for new business.
Some of Zepol’s customer base is comprised of NVOCCs, freight forwarders, and carriers. Transportation service providers use TradeIQ™ to find lists of importers by company location, trade lanes or carriers used, or products imported. Not only do transportation companies discover new sales leads, but they also keep tabs on their current customers to ensure their competitors are not taking any business away.
Importers and suppliers use TradeIQ™ to find other importers of the products they import or manufacture. If a company is importing a partial container once a quarter, it may be more cost effective for them to source domestically. With a simple product search, companies are able to find these opportunities.
Zepol’s customers utilize TradeView™ to learn where to find new sales opportunities. U.S. exporters search for product codes to see which countries are importing the products they sell. Although the importing company names are not available, knowing which countries are actually importing how much product is incredibly valuable.
If you have any questions regarding TradeIQ™ or TradeView™, please don’t hesitate to contact Zepol at 612-435-2191.
