There are many ways to obtain information about these service providers.
The Department of Export Promotion (DEP (www.thaitrade.com) is an excellent source of information. For example, it publishes an online exporter’s directory that provides a platform through which buyers can obtain information about more than 10,000 exporters, including trading companies.
For freight forwarding and shipping, there are also good resources available through the Internet. The website (www.tiffathai.org) of the Thai International Freight Forwarders Association (TIFFA) contains a list of freight forwarders and shippers and provides details about each of its member companies. The Thai Airfreight Forwarders Association website (www.tafathai.org) also provides detailed information about its members.
Other good resources for contact information would be the websites of the Federation of Thai Industries (www.fti.or.th), as well as the Board of Trade, foreign embassies and foreign chambers of commerce in Thailand.
