Background & Objectives
My client is a multibillion pound business in the security space.The client need someone to simply present them with import data (for a few specific tariff codes/product codes) from the following countries below
Kenya, Tanzania, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Uganda, Mozambique, Botswana, Nigeria,
Namibia, Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, Libya, Cameroon, Gabon, Congo (DRC), Ivory
Coast, Togo, Benin, Senegal
We would like to estimate our
2013 Market share in each of the above countries.
The suggested research
methodology is to gather the import statistics from the various government
departments by country for a defined list of Tariff Codes. We can group
these Tariff Codes into categories: Door Hardware including padlocks,
Doors and Access Control.
They know what their own business imports are per broad category, and can hence calculate their Market Share % once you have presented them with the import data, all at import
prices. This will eliminate distributor margins and hence should provide
a like comparison.
The tariff codes will be provided to you at the start of the project.
The client needs the import data by the 23rd May 2014 at the very latest.
You will need to provide them import data for a few set tariff codes for each of the countries listed. They will work out their market share themselves based on the data you provide them.If you have experience in transport/logistics or customs import/export that would be hugely beneficial as it would mean you could complete this project in a few days.This is a remote project, you can be based anywhere.
