I'm planning to start a Import/Export business, Is there a 3rd party company that can handle ship/warehousing?

Products are coming from Asia. We don't have a contracted products at the moment so we don't want to burn our capital this early in warehousing, and focus more on finding products...Is there a way to learn the business first (get small imports) before we expand..

Tough business! I was in it for about three years.

Look for Freight Forwarders in your area. They are the best source of the kind of information you are seeking. You might also find out who in the Georgia Government is working on Import/Export issues. All states have a function that helps with teaching and assisting people in that business. However, you will find that they are far more interested in and helpful with EXPORTS than they are with imports.
