Your strategy for exporting stone to India may be different from exporting to Iraq. * Be aware of the risks of exporting, so that you don't get caught up in the act. *Find your customer first and then start exporting to another country. * After finding a customer and making agreements and contracts, prepare your product and then pack it. Pay attention that the stone is one of the breakable goods and it must be properly packed so that it does not get damaged during transportation. * Be sure to have an estimate of your expenses. Calculate the amount of income and expenses you make to measure your profit and loss and then continue to export stone to other countries.
Stone export is carried out in two ways: uncut (coop) and cut (slab and tile). Cope type stone is exported to prominent countries in the field of stone such as Italy, Turkey and China, and in the destination country, the cut and the added value resulting from it benefit those countries. Coop stone exports are subject to taxes due to raw sales and no added value.
Cut stones or slabs are often exported to neighboring countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan and Persian Gulf countries. The world's stone field transaction is about two and a half billion dollars, of which the largest share belongs to Turkey with 950 million dollars.
Iran is the fourth exporter of construction stone after Turkey, Italy and Greece, and its stone export value is around 150 million dollars. Despite Turkey being the leader in the field of stone export, this amount is not extracted from Turkish mines.
In the past years, Coop stone was sent from Iran to the destination country, where it was re-imported to Iran after being transformed into slabs and tiles. Therefore, after some time, the import of stone slabs and tiles to Iran was banned.
Cope stone is placed in a 20-foot container, and slab stone is placed on a pallet due to its larger size, which can fit 5 or 6 pallets in each 20-foot container. Slab stone and due to its high sensitivity and large size, placing it in the container requires high precision. Due to its smaller size, tile stone is placed in a wooden box and can be loaded in both 20-foot and 40-foot containers.
Stone exports to China, India, and Italy are in the first rank, and the United Arab Emirates, Iraq, Turkey, Kuwait, Malaysia, and Oman are in the next ranks. Among all types of stones, marble is the most exported from Iran. Mining stones, travertine stone, porcelain stone are in the next categories. The stone export tariff code is generally in rows 2515 and 2516.
Building stones are used due to features such as polishability and high resistance to moisture, cold and heat. The demand for building stones in the country is about 8 million to 12 million tons per year. The demand for stone export is about 7 million tons equivalent to 150,314,000 dollars to other countries.
One of the reasons for the low volume of Iran's stone exports is the presence of sanctions and obstacles on Iran's banking transactions with other countries.
In terms of quality, it can be said that the products of Iran's stone factories are in accordance with the quality and standards required by European markets, but the number of merchants who can work and market professionally in international markets is limited.
