Cenports | AndMakers simplifies the process of getting your products to the US so you can start selling. Here are some insights on the services we offer to get you well on your way to becoming an international brand. 

Ocean Freight 

With Cenports | AndMakers

Free On Board (FOB) is the cost of your product along with the cost of delivery to your nearest port. We make it easy and worry-free for our clients by handling the whole shipping process to get your products to our warehouse safely and cost-effectively.

Doing it yourself

Taking on shipping by yourself can be both costly and risky. To tackle this independently, you would need to cover the complete costs of transportation, ocean freight, and warehouse space to store your products. Without a partnership or volume-based contract with transportation services, it can become very expensive to get your products to the US. Warehouses are also a big investment; many warehouses require multi-year rental contracts, increasing your exposure to risk of overpaying for unneeded space.

Sales and Marketing

AndMakers works closely with our clients to make sure that your products will perform well in the US market. The AndMakers team also works with you to get your products onto major key retail partners such as Wayfair and Home Depot to get exposure to millions of potential customers.

Doing it yourself

Selling independently can also pose major challenges for businesses just getting started. Some of the obstacles include finding a sales team and being able to establish partnerships with retailers to get your products on their websites and in their stores.

Fulfillment

With Cenports | AndMakers

Cenports | AndMakers have you covered on getting your products to your customers. Our services include fulfillment as a package or as an independent service. This service allows you to get your products to your customers quickly and cost-effectively through our partnerships with shipping providers. Along with getting your products to your clients, Cenports offers a dashboard to all our clients that gives you one central place to manage and track all of your sales seamlessly across platforms.

Doing it yourself

Traditionally, when you have a sale you would have to use local shipping services such as FedEx and UPS, but rates for smaller accounts can prove to be costly, and the process can be cumbersome. Shipping independently would require you to log into each of the retailer platforms to export the sales from each platform into shipping services like FedEx and UPS, which takes up a lot of time and resources.
