Importing from India

A Magellan solution for all your business needs

Need to import from India to Australia?

Traditionally characterised by poor infrastructure, disconnectedness from global supply chains, and unpredictable ready dates manufacturing in India has its problems. Combined with its challenging geography and monsoonal climate, the result can be long lead times and supply chain uncertainty, putting off many from doing business in India.
The Indian government is attacking these problems by investing in industrial corridors, smart cities, training and export incentives to promote advanced manufacturing processes and ensure the nation’s development.
This could not come at a better time as many Australian companies are reconsidering their reliance on a single market approach. The global shock of COVID-19 and ongoing trade tensions between Australia and China underscore the need for built-in redundancies in international sourcing – a hot topic of discussion for governments and businesses alike.
Emerging as an attractive hub for foreign investment in the manufacturing sector, India is poised to become an exciting new opportunity for many businesses.
Until then, a carefully chosen logistics partner with a successful track record in India can help you overcome these India supply-chain complications.
