Responsible selling of technical products to overseas customers often involves far more than specification, manufacture, shipping and delivery. Installation, site testing, operator training, commissioning may be part of the contract too, and even if they are not, you probably need to be ready to handle operational queries, warranty issues, upgrades and repairs effectively, at a moment’s notice.

It’s no surprise, then, that top manufacturers spend so much of their resources on aftersales operations. And, with so many travel restrictions having come into place during the last year, it’s also no surprise that Covid19 has wreaked havoc on many businesses ability to deliver good aftersales service in Asia.

Take China, for instance. With visas restricted, many direct inbound routes suspended, and weeks of quarantine to endure, sending engineers from Europe to do on-site installation represents a massive cost – possibly even a prohibitive one.  Setting up a new business entity there, to deliver these services, is an option, but it takes lots of time and money too, especially when recruitment is considered – certainly not a quick fix.

East Asian economies are growing, and investing in production capacity (including imported capital equipment) at a time when other global markets have slowed down.  Delivering in East Asia as never been so important!
