Value Proposition


 

 "We believe in creating value for clients and suppliers by offering
complete solutions rather than just products"

 

 

For our clients, we offer to solve their entire supply chain needs, whether they are as simple as procurement of raw materials and machinery, or as complex as procurement, international and local logistics as well as technical assistance.

 

For our suppliers, we offer to generate incremental sales and remove credit risk. We are able to guarantee that suppliers will get paid because COANSA’s credit history allows for major international insurance companies to insure the credit we receive. COANSA, instead of our suppliers, takes on the credit risk of dealing with customers in the region. We are better positioned to do that thanks to our history, market expertise, operational infrastructure and financial and administrative know-how.

 


 Our full value chain can be described as follows:

 

Technical Sales: Our technical sales force helps clients identify the best products and prices for their needs. Our financial and administrative infrastructure supports commercial activities to maximize flexibility and efficiency for our clients. Procurement: With local inventories in Costa Rica and Guatemala, as well as worldwide partnerships, we identify the most effective source for the products our clients require. International Logistics: Once the sale has been completed, our logistics team makes sure every detail is taken care for a successful delivery. We have access to competitive freight tariffs thanks to strategic commercial partner alliances. Bonded Warehouse: Our bonded warehouse in Costa Rica enables us to ensure that products arriving in Costa Rica are handled in adequate ways to ensure physical and chemical preservation, and to go through the nationalization process in an expedited way. It also allows us to re-export to Free Trade Zones and neighboring countries without additional tax penalties. General Warehouses: Clients can request their products straight from the bonded warehouse, or we can store the materials in a general storage facility until the product is needed. Our general warehouses in Costa Rica and Guatemala also allow us to store inventory of products locally, to serve our clients with maximum speed when required. Local Logistics: We offer the flexibility to structure direct dispatch operations to clients straight from the port, bonded warehouse or general warehouse. We can provide transportation services throughout all of the Central American region. Technical Support: Our sales force and distribution units have daily contact with our clients, thus being able to provide immediate solutions and answers to customers’, requests as well as to permanently monitor the market.
