Ixport is a technology company which provides easy to use technology in order to help SME's to start or improve their exporting endeavours, by providing a SaaS, turnkey solution for them at a very reasonable monthly cost.
As the export process is complex, time consuming and manual process driven, many companies do not export for these very reasons and is evident in 2018 when only 232k UK SME's were exporting! That’s roughly 10% of a £600bn UK market.
Speaking from my previous experience as an importer/exporter of food in Singapore, the export process can take days or even weeks to complete due to the many variables that SME's have to take into account when trying to export. For example: Cash-flow, Slow pace of communication between all parties, technology gaps, global time differences, foreign currency fluctuations, sparse product information, manual cargo sizing and quotations can all lead to wasted time, loss of sales and productivity

For example: Cash-flow, Slow pace of communication between all parties, technology gaps, global time differences, foreign currency fluctuations, sparse product information, manual cargo sizing and quotations can all lead to wasted time, loss of sales and productivity
To overcome many of these challenges, we have developed the iXport platform over a 2-year period to achieve the same result in mere SECONDS, 24/7. By combining all key export services with e-commerce, real-time data and cargo sizing algorithms in one integrated platform, we are able to achieve significant time and cost savings for our customers.

This huge time saving approach, coupled with the real-time data quotes which we have integrated via API's from our global partners such as WorldFirst (Now part of Ant Financial and the wider Alibaba group), OFX, and Searates.com connects their buyers (importers) to export services which they would normally have to go and source themselves. Furthermore, we provide cargo sizing algorithms which saves a huge amount of time and money for both the exporter and importer by providing a automated solution to what is normally accomplished through complex, error prone spreadsheets.
We believe that if the barriers to entry and complexities of exporting are simplified and reduced, SME’s have a BIG opportunity to engage in new global business through the use of the iXport platform.
