Favors Cash Flow

Rather than paying for steel before it ships, payment is made during transit or at delivery. This ensures the payment does not precede the material too far in advance.

Reduced Risk

Suppliers assume risk of material loss or damage in transit, thus reducing risk for the importing buyer.

Drawback

Many governments offer drawbacks, or tax and duty refunds, on goods exported to a country if those goods are later exported to another country. If an import qualifies for drawback, this could significantly decrease costs associated with importing a material.

Controlling Inflation

Increased spending on imported products, such as steel, decreases the demand for domestic products, thus controlling a country’s rate of inflation.

Reducing Production Cost

Raw materials can often be found abroad for less cost than available domestically. Buying and importing can ultimately lower your overall raw material cost, thus lowering total production cost.

Competitive National Product

Imported steel has higher or comparable quality to what is made domestically, at a lower cost due to economies of scale. Importing will help save money and using the highest quality steel will ensure a quality final product.
