A simple way to ensure you get the goods you want from overseas is to buy from a major Australian company and then buy a cargo box, says a new report.

Business Insider / Pulse Global Business Advisory: The most common ways companies earn profits from international transactions A recent study by the Pulsed Finance Institute and the Australian Chamber of Commerce found that Australian companies that ship goods around the world earn about $2.8bn per year from these deals.
This compares to about $900m for the world as a whole.
Here are some of the main reasons companies do business internationally: Trade is booming.
The number of people moving goods from Australia to overseas has exploded in the past decade.
That growth has been driven by the global economic crisis.
Since 2010, Australia’s trade with the rest of the world has grown by about 12 per cent, while exports to other countries have grown by more than 80 per cent.
With global trade growth expected to grow by around 7 per cent per year through 2020, the trade with Australia will continue to rise.
International trade is also increasing at an annual rate of around 2.5 per cent over the same period.
That’s up from an annual average of just over 1.5% in the years 2000-10.
The economic impact of this trade is clear.

A recent Australian Bureau of Statistics study found that, over the past five years, the number of Australians travelling to other nations for work and education has more than doubled.
Around 5.2 million people in Australia were visiting another country in the year ending June 2018.
This is up from 4.2 per cent of the population in 2015.
The average Australian is now expected to visit a foreign country in a total of five times over the next five years.
Australia is also leading the world in the number and types of companies that export to other markets.
There are currently over 1,000 overseas-based companies operating in Australia, and the vast majority are multinationals with subsidiaries in countries around the globe.
According to Pulse Global Consulting, there are currently more than 100,000 Australian companies exporting to 25 countries around that time.
Australia has a high level of international direct investment.
This figure is at a record high, with an estimated $4.3 trillion in foreign direct investment (FDI) coming in from China, India, South Africa, Japan and Brazil.
Australian companies are a major player in the global economy, exporting over $4 trillion worth of goods and $1 trillion worth in services.
This makes Australia the world’s fifth-largest exporter of goods, after China, South Korea, France and Germany.
The Pulse Global report found that Australia has the third-highest number of companies doing business in the Asia Pacific region, and second-highest percentage of companies in the Americas and Africa.
Australia’s growth in international direct investments is expected to continue to accelerate over the coming years, with the economy growing at 3.1 per cent a year.
The report found Australia’s exports to Asia are forecast to grow from $1.2 trillion in 2020 to $3.2 billion in 2030, with Australian exports to Europe and North America expected to increase by nearly 10 per cent and 10 per.cent respectively.
Australia exported about $11.5 billion worth of its goods to the rest or developing markets of the global North in the first six months of 2018, according to Pulse.
However, exports to the developed markets of Europe and the Middle East and Africa are expected to drop by another 5 per cent in 2020, and 6 per cent by 2025.
Australia will also become a major buyer of services from overseas.
According for the first time, Pulse Global estimates that Australia will be the fourth-largest overseas buyer of global services by 2020.
These services will include financial services, legal services, information technology services, and public health and social services.
Australia remains the world leader in technology, with almost 80 per per cent share of global software sales in 2020.
Australia also remains a leader in the use of technology in health and education, with nearly 30 per cent for education and healthcare.
In 2020, Australia has overtaken India as the world leading destination for IT professionals.
Australia currently leads the world with about 40 per cent global use of software.
Australian businesses have an ambitious agenda.
The global economy is expected by 2020 to grow to $17.5 trillion.
This represents more than half of the annual GDP of the United States and more than three-quarters of China’s total economic output.
Australia leads the international community in economic development and international cooperation.
Australia can play a significant role in ensuring a peaceful world, by helping to tackle global warming and fighting climate change.
