We have said that once the foreign buyer has sent you a written order and you have accepted this order, a contact of sale can now be considered to be in place. At this point, a number of actions and activities need to take place in order for the order to be successfully completed. This series of activities is often referred to as the export sequence and can be considered an important component of the overall export process. It involves those activities necessary to ensure that an export order is properly fulfilled. We assume that export sequence begins after your confirmation of the written order/indent sent to you by your foreign buyer (which we will refer to as the importer from now onwards).
