Keeping the bigger picture in mind

Imagine your perishable goods have finally arrived in Australia and you are being informed by Australian Customs that your cargo has to be re-exported because the product labelling does not comply with local regulations.

With Harders Advisory, you benefit from more than supply chain optimisation and the efficient movement of goods – we look at the bigger picture as well as the finer details, we:

  • help clients determine the feasibility of a business opportunity
  • advise on ventures into new markets
  • ensure product compliance, thus streamline customs clearance and improve speed to market
  • consider the finer details of international trade to mitigate risk and improve your cash flow
  • streamline your import / export processes
  • analyse and optimise complex global supply chains
  • offer solid trade advice

We provide complete peace of mind – so you can confidently focus on your customers.

Stay ahead of your competition

Unlike other consultancies or logistics firms, we bring a unique combination of strategy and execution to the table. This allows us to consider all aspects of the process: industry specific shipping requirements, trade routes, fluctuating shipping capacities, free trade agreements, tariff concessions, local import and export regulations, product classification, labelling requirements, AHECC, TRADEX, DAWR, CoR, BMSB and many other acronyms, which you might not be aware of but are likely to affect your bottom line – or may even have the potential to stall your business entirely.
