  • import or export goods, or use them in your business
  • pay customs duties
  • respond to invitations to tender involving the international movement of goods
  • manage a supply chain
You might feel (more than most) anxious at the thought of whether you could do more in terms of customs compliance, saving customs duty and contributing via import/export management to business success. Can you guarantee that you are doing every single thing possible? If you automatically thought no ……..or felt unsure, then read on.

The fact is you can never feel 100% certain; importing and exporting rules, procedures and arrangements are complex and often changing aren't they? All those tricky bits and pieces, curious forms to fill in, procedures to follow, codes to find, public notices to check and terminology and rules you think everybody else understands (when actually they probably don't!) But don't think of all those rules, forms and procedures that might catch you out. Instead, imagine saying yes to getting some specialist help from Quadrel and seeing how relieved you'll feel – knowing precisely where you stand.

You gain benefits for your business if you:
  • manage your customs and trade compliance;
  • reduce import duties;
  • resolve difficulties with UK Customs;
  • achieve process efficiencies; and
  • manage risk
So…. we work with you to ensure that your business plans and decisions are made which take account of customs implications and which optimize beneficial customs and trade arrangements as far as possible. We work with you to turn direct and indirect costs of importing into bottom line savings for you. You can save time, effort and money, gain higher productivity and competitive edge over other businesses that just "muddle" along.
