Export Trading Companies
- Export Trading Companies (ETC) are very similar to Export Management Companies.
- An ETC is more likely to take title to the product and pay you directly.
- An ETC acts as an export department.
- An ETC tends to be demand driven and transaction oriented.
- In the United States an ETC is a legally defined entity under the Export Trading Company Act.
- An ETC is very difficult to set up.
- Special certifications and requirements must be met.
