Importing your products into India is a good way to test the market and learn about your industry. Once you have the right registrations and have done a first “test” shipment the actual process of import & distribution in India is not that complicated. What is complicated in India is ensuring you have all the right registrations and calculations to do that first shipment, and that your import strategy makes sense for where your customers are and your pricing.
India is vast and complex, and while implementation of GST has made shipping goods between states much less complicated, it has not solved all the complications. You need to know where your customers are and the best routes to get to them as fast and effectively as possible. You also need the right intelligence to make sure your stock levels are balanced and you are not paying the warehouse for storing your goods for longer than necessary – nor are you out of stock.
Shipping spare parts and managing products for Indian customers who bought online also need to be thought through and understood.
