Project Description

Barcelona Export - Export groups

Barcelona Export manages export groups


An exporting group is composed of companies that belong to the same sector of activity, have complementary and non-concurrent products, and go to the same target market. Their respective products strengthen the joint offer and provide:

– more business opportunities
– Increased strength in negotiations
– increased speed in commercial prospecting
– reduction of the costs of prospecting


Export groups are led by the same consultant who prospects for several companies at the same time. From this fact several advantages arise, such as speed ​​and success of market penetration and synergies between companies to improve the entry of each of the products / services.

Barcelona Export regularly manages several export groups with high penetration results in different markets.


Why not go by your own?
