The Cyprus Cosmetics Environment

Cyprus differs from the major European markets: It is an island and as a result the continental short trucking transit times are not achievable due to the fact air services are always used.
 
  • Cyprus is an island and as a result the continental short trucking transit times are not achievable due to the fact air services are always used

  • 98% of the businesses in Cyprus are small and medium size enterprises. This fact is also reflected in the healthcare and pharmaceuticals sector at the POS (Point Of Sale) side. As a result the supply chain has more orders of lower value and quantities to many POSs thus adding to the logistics costs

  • Due to the existence of the tourism industry and liberal regulation the cosmetics sector is channelled to the consumer through most channels than any other industry

  • Electronic ordering and invoicing is not yet developed in Cyprus. This increases the cost for checking and administration for both suppliers and retailers
