Exporting your product

Exporting can help make your business more profitable by accessing large international markets for your brand, products and services.

The benefits of exporting can far outweigh the costs, but being successful requires a significant commitment of staff and financial resources, solid market research, and cultural awareness of your new markets.

If you are considering exporting, examine your capacity in terms of resources, as well as your ability to compete with international competition.

The Tasmanian Government can provide resource assistance through trade missions, inward buyer programs, industry partnerships and connections to an international network of export advisors to help you and your export-ready business connect with international markets.

Austrade is the Australian Government’s export agency.  Austrade provides a range of free information and new exporter business tools plus fee for service activities to grow your business in growth and emerging markets such as Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Latin America and Russia.

Financial assistance may be available to existing exporters to help with approved marketing activities to develop new markets.  Further information on these grant programs can be found at Austrade's Export Marketing Development.

Export Finance Australia is the Australian Government’s export credit agency.  They provide a range of government backed finance and insurance solutions to Australian businesses involved in export, overseas investment or those looking to work in export supply chain projects in partnership with banks, other agencies and partners.

You can find information on transporting your goods to and from the mainland and overseas on our Freight webpage.
