BUSINESSES in Coventry are being offered free, one-to-one support from an export expert to help them overcome some of the challenges to overseas trade.
The Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce and the Department of International Trade are offering companies the support on the back of the UK’s exit from the EU.
Beverley Price, who will assist firms with any trade issues they may be experiencing anywhere in the world, said: “The exit from the EU has forced many more businesses to understand much more about export procedures, documentation and customs.
“This is my area of expertise and I am delighted to be able to share that knowledge with businesses across Coventry to help them export all over the world.”
She added businesses trading with the EU prior to Brexit could do so easily but now had to follow a number of procedures.
A range of support, funded by the city council through the Additional Restrictions Grant support package for businesses, will be tailored to meet each company’s needs and will help more Coventry firms export with the full knowledge of what they have to do.
Meetings will be held one-to-one in person, online or on the phone and each one can have up to six hours of free help.
