These are your advantages
Swiss retailers often buy too expensive. Many are also aware of this, especially when looking to their European neighbors. But high costs, customs duties and administrative burdens make importing from abroad impossible.
With Columbus Crossborder Purchasing, you integrate suppliers in foreign countries close to the border quite simply into your purchasing system – as if they were Swiss suppliers. This allows you to reorder small quantities on a daily or weekly basis without incurring high costs.
