Spotlight on future of international trade

A firm of international logistics specialists is joining forces with business leaders to help Shropshire companies identify post-Brexit export opportunities.

Telford-based Global Freight Services Ltd, which has been shipping goods around the globe for more than 20 years, will highlight some of the options for businesses to grow and expand their markets at the free event at the Marches Growth Hub in Telford on March 13.

The Future of International Trade event will feature a range of business experts who will give an update on the latest economic environment and how these are impacting on international trade.

Those attending will hear from business specialists about how to identify new opportunities post-Brexit and companies that are already trading successfully overseas will share some of their experiences.

The event will begin with breakfast and networking at 8.30am. International managers from Barclays Bank will talk about the current economic climate while Norman Rikunenko from the Department for International Trade will share the latest Government guidance on trading overseas.

Peter Wilding, corporate lawyer and Brexit advisor for Shropshire law firm FBC Manby Bowdler, will share his knowledge and advise businesses on what steps they can take to prepare for the UK leaving the EU.

The event is being organised by Anton Gunter, managing director of Global Freight in partnership with Barclays, in a bid to alleviate some of the current fears facing the export industry.

He said: “It is a challenging and uncertain time for businesses but there are plenty of opportunities in the current global trade environment for companies to grow and expand their international markets. Brexit is happening in one form or another but we really feel there is no need for businesses to fear it.

“In the short term it will cause a few headaches but there are numerous practical steps companies can take to make sure they are fully prepared and understand the procedures and processes in place when it comes to trade tariffs, commodity codes and EORI codes.”

Anton added: “This event is all about supporting and providing useful information and dispelling some of the myths that exporting is difficult for small businesses. With Brexit imminent, it’s important for more businesses to reach out to fresh overseas markets to develop their international trade.”
