Korea a world exporter

Korea is the world’s seventh largest exporter and Asia’s fourth largest economy. This makes it one of the region’s major manufacturing countries and an important trading partner for Australia. Korea turned its economy around by introducing export friendly policies and creating a strong manufacturing sector.

Korea is known for manufacturing steel, cars, electrical and telecommunications equipment as well as shipbuilding and marine parts.

Korea is well placed to manufacture and distribute product to consumer markets in China, the United States and the EU as well as the rest of Asia and the Pacific.

Exports from Korea to Australia

In 2014 the Korea Australia Free Trade Agreement (KAFTA) opened up trade between the two countries. Today, this trade is over $33 billion annually.

Korea exports to Australia include:

  • Cars
  • Televisions
  • LCD displays
  • Heating equipment
  • Air conditioners
  • Telecommunications
  • Civil engineering products

Understanding the Korean supply chain is vital for the efficient transport of product from factory to port. BCR offers businesses an end-to-end supply chain solution by coordinating the movement of product from factory to final destination.

Australian exports to Korea

Korea is a significant importer of Australian iron ore, aluminium and coal as well as agricultural commodities.

Moving product from an Australian factory so it arrives at the Korean destination on time requires understanding of supply chain and regulation. BCR is the expert in coordinating the shipment of products for their business customers.
