In today’s world of global business transactions, establishing a local business presence in foreign countries is becoming more and more a commonplace. Whilst logistically this seems like a big task – office space, local staff, local infrastructure to name but a few considerations that spring to mind, it’s actually quite simple in practice.
Unless you require a physical ‘bricks and mortar’ establishment (because your business model consists of walk in customers and clients) one highly effective way to conduct business is to utilize the services of a commercial mail receiving agency (CMRA). We are a CRMA and can help provide your company that professional business address it would need. Us CRMAs are also known as a mail drop service, and us good CMRAs can provide a number of additional services for offshore and local clients including provision of local mailbox locations which acts as a business address for receiving and sending mail, parcels and various other documents. CMRAs also function independently of official postal systems, which means they can send and receive courier drop offs and other items not generally carried by those postal services. Basically our services go further than the limitations of present couriers.
Companies and businesses adopt this business strategy for many varied reasons. It may be because people in a particular country or state prefer to deal locally, making the acquisition of a local business address pretty much a mandatory part of establishing a successful business presence there. Or it may be that a neighboring country or state has a more ‘up-market’ image and so a business address there is seen as being advantageous to the business.
Home-based businesses may also prefer to keep their physical location private by having their business address elsewhere. In some cases it may also come right down to simple economics especially for companies that do a lot of mail outs – postage rates are a lot cheaper in some countries but in order to take advantage of those rates the business needs to have a return address in that country.
If you’re looking for a mail drop service we can help with a complete range of postal, electronic mail, and telecommunication options.
