Optimism for import and export growth in 2023 

At Global Freight Services we’re heading into 2023 with plans to help even more small and medium sized businesses to grow their export trade. 

Despite the ongoing global challenges created by Brexit, covid, supply chain issues caused by the war in Ukraine, driver shortages in the haulage industry and the cost of living crisis, 2022 proved to be a very busy year for us. 

Managing director Anton Gunter said: “Whilst some businesses undoubtedly steered away from pushing forward with their import and export plans in 2022, Global Freight had a busy year and is looking to more success over the next 12 months. 

“I think more businesses will be looking to push into new markets and grow their export and import trade this year as the country tries to get back on track after the uncertainty of recent months. 

“It won’t be without its challenges I’m sure, but the signs are good for an improvement in trading conditions this year.” 

On the Global Freight agenda for this year is an exciting plan for a new expert advice portal, which will provide additional support for smaller businesses trying to get started in export and import. 

We’re looking to launch this early spring-time so watch this space! 

The portal will be a one-stop advice centre for importers and exporters. The main aim is to make international trade easy for small to medium sized businesses – the advice and information will be easily accessible and cover a range of topics and issues.
