Saving time and money on exports

An international trade support service has revamped its offering to help more businesses save money and time on their exports.

South Yorkshire International Trade Centre (SYITC) has expanded its services and aims to create a more joined up approach to export support for businesses across the region.

SYITC is a partnership of all the South Yorkshire Chambers and offers broad support for businesses locally to grow their global market – a key area outlined in the proposals by the Local Enterprise Partnership.

Working with other organisations in the region all areas of international trade have been covered. UK Trade and Investment working on market development, Sheffield Hallam University on business strategy and research, South Yorkshire International Trade Forum running informative network events and Creative Sheffield developing strategic overseas relationships with other organisations providing specialist support and advice.

SYITC now looks to establish a string of additional core services to make their offering to members unique and enable it to add value to companies’ international trade departments.

Services will cover export training, translation, import and export advice, export documentation, international student placements, letters of credit services and an international trade office consultancy service.
