Turning the Tide: How We Revolutionized a Liechtenstein Logistics Company’s Revenue and Global Presence
Here's What We Do Better
Our client, a logistics company based in Liechtenstein, was facing a myriad of challenges: low sales revenue, cash flow issues, and diminished profitability. The company specialized in providing end-to-end logistics solutions, including freight forwarding, warehousing, and transportation services to a wide range of industries.
The primary issues faced by the company included:
Declining sales revenue and profitability.
Limited global presence and access to new markets.
High operational and transaction costs.
As countertrade experts and consultants, we implemented several countertrade mechanisms to address the client’s challenges and transform their business. These mechanisms included:
Counter-Purchase: We helped the client establish counter-purchase agreements with major suppliers and customers in different countries. This allowed them to exchange their logistics services for goods and services required to run their operations efficiently.
Offsets: We facilitated direct and indirect offset agreements with suppliers and customers in various countries. Through these agreements, our client committed to investing in the countries where they did business, fostering economic growth and goodwill.
Joint Ventures: We assisted the client in forming joint ventures with local logistics companies in target markets, enabling them to expand their operations and establish a stronger presence in these countries.
Tolling: We helped the client set up tolling agreements with other logistics companies, allowing them to use their partners’ facilities and equipment to provide logistics services in new markets.
Framework Agreements: We negotiated long-term framework agreements with key customers, ensuring a steady flow of business and revenue.
We worked closely with the client to execute each countertrade mechanism, taking the following steps:
Conducted in-depth market research to identify potential suppliers and customers in target markets.
Negotiated terms and conditions for counter-purchase and offset agreements with the identified parties.
Assisted in the establishment of joint ventures, including legal and financial aspects.
Set up tolling and framework agreements, and ensured compliance with local regulations.
Provided ongoing support and consultation as needed.
The implementation of these countertrade mechanisms led to significant improvements in our client’s business:
Sales revenue increased by 200% within the first year.
The company expanded its operations into 50 new countries within 60 days.
Operational and transaction costs were reduced by 50%.
The client established new supplier bases in 30 countries.
New global distribution channels and sales networks were established in 40 countries.
Moreover, the company expanded its global presence, establishing a foothold in 15 new countries within 60 days of implementing the countertrade mechanisms.
Through the strategic use of multiple countertrade mechanisms, we successfully transformed the struggling Liechtenstein logistics company into a thriving, globally competitive enterprise. By tapping into new markets, establishing new partnerships, and optimizing their operations, our client saw a remarkable increase in sales revenue, profitability, and global presence.
