Whether you’re looking for help with importing or exporting, learn how to grow your business and develop in new markets with our essential guide to international trade.
Exploiting the opportunities that international trade offers is exciting, but it is also a more complex process than trading within the UK. It’s not just about you and your customers; you will also be dealing with Customs, other government authorities, banks, insurers, export/import service providers and international carriers. And you will need to famillarise yourself with how international trade is conducted, different business practices, cultures, customs and currencies.
Success depends on developing a robust export/import strategy, thorough market research, a good understanding of the business issues you need to address, and knowing where to go for help, advice and support. The DHL Guide website has been designed as a guide to exporting to help you through the early stages of going global. It will introduce you to many other organisations that can help you with international trade and provide lots of useful information.
