Moving stock closer to the market in Europe and remaining their owner is associated with having a registered company, e.g. a trading company in the European Union. This commercial activity will additionally support your organization in expanding your markets and ensuring that your distributors properly perform their tasks in the distribution of goods.
Your distributors in Europe order full containers (FCL) to to minimize shipping costs per bottle and utilize in the most effective way space and payload. This model of operation means that before they order another delivery, very often some of the goods that sold the fastest will not be available until the next delivery (fastest following month or later)
Keeping additional stock close to the market, basically at their fingertips, will allow you to quickly replenish particular assortments and maintain its availability for all distributors.
This solution is really effective because you keep stock in one place for everyone. You send one container with different products to several distributors, instead of several containers that will have to be stored anyway.

How does it look from your perspective?
Distributors place orders directly to you as before. You (your trading company) send us warehouse exit orders. We prepare the order in warehouse and send it to your distributor. The distributor collects the goods and you receive information from us when and what has been delivered. Only the customs clearance is done by the distributor and the goods can enter on the particular country market in Europe.
