How can I help you?

The Department of International Trade exists to help UK companies export. That ranges from those looking to export for the first time to more experienced exporters seeking to increase their overseas sales or enter new markets. We work with product and service companies , large or small, regardless of their sector.

The export journey can take many different paths. To help you on that journey an International Trade Advisor can help you. I am an ITA specialising in the rail sector as previously I have worked in rail developing signalling and train control products and then delivering projects using those products in Finland, Norway and Taiwan.  I can help signpost all the services available to you from DIT and use my experience and network and those of my numerous DIT colleagues to assist your journey.

DIT services include networking events, seminars, webcasts, market visits, meet the buyer and 1:1 support in many areas. Please do get in touch so can have a talk to an ITA to see how we can help. When in industry I used many of the DIT services that helped us win some very substantial contracts.

Example of services we have that most will use are:

Risk guides

The top reasons why companies tell us the export are:

2 – Increased profitability

3 – Faster growth

4 – More innovation

5 – Greater resilience
