Export Services

Many of the assignments we conduct are international in scope. Over the past 20 years, often supported by our international network, we have developed a range of 'information-gathering' services designed specially to assist the export industry in new terrorities.

These services are available in-house or via members of our strategic network. They can either be commissioned individually or can be combined in a modular approach. In numerous instances, we have not only collected the necessary information, but also worked on the succcessful implementation.
