This study aims to assess Jordan’s existing trade-oriented services market and identify demand-driven trade-related services. The study employed desk research, expert interviews, and a survey conducted from September to November 2018. The study’s major finding is that most companies are unaware of the range of services available for supporting trade, which suggests that Jordan’s service providers’ activities should be promoted more strongly. Furthermore, since no Jordanian export service providers offer a full support suite in their program, there is no one-stop-shop where an exporter can get all the information they need. This is an important finding, as companies interested in exporting may lose interest if they feel that the process of obtaining support is too time-consuming. The scattered nature of the export landscape is probably one of the main reasons Jordan’s export sector is not currently reaching its full potential; it should, therefore, be consolidated to provide exporters with greater access to information and support.
