Our Services

Facilitating the export process

As direct representatives, Access to Africa handles all marketing activities and communication between the supplier and the importer. Our function is to facilitate smooth collaboration, swift action, successful brand building and exceptional sales without compromising the direct line between source and buyer.

We liaise and negotiate with new and existing customers and suppliers. We also coordinate the order cycle and associated information systems. Furthermore we analyse data to monitor performance and plan improvements in advance. Our mission is to continually develop business by gaining new contacts, analysing logistical problems and creating solutions that work. An awareness of and strategic response to external influences, such as legislation, changing costs and environmental pressures, is vital to our success.
