Online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has given its backing to a new government plan announced this week to help businesses break into new international markets. UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) has joined with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to draw up a five-year Charter for Business.
The aim is for UKTI to become "more entrepreneurial" and find new ways to help British businesses to enter foreign markets and increase the volume of goods being exported from the UK. Richard Mercer, Marketing Director at Parcel2Go, welcomed the move which he believes has the potential to make a big difference to the number of UK companies that take the plunge and attempt to break into foreign markets.
Bolton-based Parcel2Go has been helping individuals and companies to export products for years, by providing easy access to reliable courier services that deal with international delivery shipments on a daily basis.
Richard said: "Small businesses that send their products to countries all over the world are set to continue to play a key role in helping to get the British economy back on track.
"The team at Parcel2Go deal with a wide variety of businesses, some that have been exporting goods to foreign countries for years and others that are just taking their first tentative steps. Knowing there is help available is hugely reassuring for firms, and that advice can potentially mean the difference between success and failure."
The government has said that following the release of its Charter for Business it
will start to look in more detail at how it works with businesses, especially small
and medium-sized companies, and then decide on what action will be most effective.
