What people say about International Trade Matters...
Alex and I are so grateful (and impressed!) for you sharing your advice and knowledge. We both agree that your advice has literally taken a weight off our shoulders
Comprehensive training in all I need to participate more fully in Customs-related activities within the workplace. And it's always good to learn new stuff.
This is a very complex area to cover, and the best part of the course was the personal service given by Mike and Frances. ITM is a great company to work with and go the extra mile when you need them to.
For me understanding Incoterms was something new and learning about trade agreements. It was good that I could point out areas that needed to be recorded for the business to make decisions on after the meeting.
