Global Freight launches export mentoring scheme to celebrate 25 years

Global Freight is celebrating 25 years in business this month and to celebrate we are launching a new mentoring scheme for SMEs looking to take their first steps into international trade. 

We’re giving 25 businesses the opportunity to grow their sales through export with our new support and advice programme. 

With our long and successful track record of helping small to medium sized businesses get started on their export journey, this new scheme will play a significant role in helping more Midlands-based businesses to sell their goods and services overseas. 

Managing Director 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 that are new to international trade, so it seems fitting to celebrate our 25th anniversary doing what we do best — 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. 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, 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. 

“Changes brought about by Brexit also means there is a real opportunity for businesses to explore markets beyond Europe across the rest of the world.” 

Global Freight Services was founded in July 1996 and since then we have grown to become one of the region’s leading international freight experts, demonstrating year on year growth. 

We specialise in a range of services including import, export and cross trade, courier services, warehouse distribution and international house moves. 

We are also very proud to have won several professional awards over the years including Shropshire Small Business of the Year in 2010 and more recently we’ve supported hundreds of small businesses through the Brexit Transition by operating as one of the Federation of Small Businesses go-to experts on international trade. 

Places for the new international trade mentoring programme are limited to 25 and to apply businesses should email Mr Gunter at or call 01952 270699.
