Export Process

The Exporting Roadmap is designed to give you a high-level understanding of the process involved in developing and executing a success “plan”. Research resources, videos or workshop links and helpful documents will be noted when they exist for any given step.  

The Process is also offered in a graphical format that should make it easier to visualize and understand the entire process and steps.  The graphical map will also allow easier navigation within the process as you gain understanding and develop your plan. 

An SBDC International Trade Specialist and business advisors are available to assist you with one-on-one, no-cost, advising to help in the development of your export plan.  This assistance may also include market research to help define and penetrate your target market using WSU and other University research interns.
