Organization Chart for Export / Import Business
julia burlacu, Entrepreneur, Mexico

What way is the best to organize an export/import business (in terms of staff and their responsibilities) given that: products are manufactured in HQ Germany, imported to Mexico from Germany and exported directly from Germany to all other countries in Latin America?
All invoicing and PO processing is done from the Mexican subsidiary.
Would you group operations based on type of business: import or export or on type of activities that staff is performing? Why?

Organizational Chart

I hope without a picture the idea will be clear:
The idea is based by creating two managers for the firm, the first one is the chairman and he's responsible for the supporting departments such as finance and accounting, HR, etc., the second manager is the executive manager who is responsible for the core business of the firm, such as marketing & sales, projects, or any other core function relating to the firm's business. This second manager is reporting to the chairman.
When we draw a chart, it seem vertical departments (supporting departments) report to the chairman are serving the the core business while the horizontal departments report to the executive manager.
Hope it is clear?

You should have different qualified logisticians, for example a Head of Outbound Logistics and coordinators, a Head of Inbound Logistics and coordinators, someone to look after the management information system, and a Manager Logistics and Marketing.
