Global Freight Services based in Telford, Shropshire, is celebrating its 25th anniversary next month (July), and to mark the milestone Managing Director, Anton Gunter, is giving 25 businesses from across the Midlands the chance to join an international trade mentoring scheme. As part of the scheme, Anton and his team, will provide tailored, expert advice to SME business owners looking to start trading overseas. They will be able to get free one-to-one advice on all the processes involved and get help on any aspects of trading internationally which is proving a barrier to growth.
Anton Gunter said, “For the last 25 years we have taken great pride in the fact that we are able to make the shipping process as straightforward and as predictable as possible for clients who are new to international trade, so it seems fitting to celebrate our 25th anniversary doing what we do best and that is supporting businesses who are looking to move freight globally for the first time.
“The new mentoring programme will provide one-to-one support and targeted advice to business owners on international trade and the processes involved and those accessing the scheme will be supported for up to six months by our specialist trade advisers.
“Exporting can often seem like a complex and challenging step forward, but our aim is to help de-mystify that process and open up new markets for growth. It’s a great opportunity for any company wanting to start selling overseas.”
Mr. Gunter added: “The Midlands is home to some incredibly ambitious young businesses and if armed with the right knowledge and skills they have the scope to become an international success and we can help make that happen.
“Furthermore, changes brought about by Brexit means there is a real opportunity for businesses to explore markets beyond Europe across the rest of the world.”
