Bolton-based international parcel delivery expert Parcel2Go has called on businesses in the North East to take advantage of a new scheme designed to help companies export their goods to new markets.
The North East Chamber of Commerce has officially launched NECC Global, two support packages designed to help small, medium and large businesses in the region to increase the volume of goods they export.
Parcel2Go has been helping businesses to send goods to countries all over the world for more than 20 years and now handles in excess of two million parcels every year. Through partnerships with some of the world's leading courier companies including DHL, FedEx, Parcelforce and City Link, packages are shipped safely to countries including Tanzania, Finland and Australia.
Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said: "Support schemes such as the packages offered by the North East Chamber of Commerce play a major role in helping companies to expand their horizons and break into new markets around the world.
"At Parcel2Go we work with a large number of companies of all sizes, across all industry sectors, and understand how important it is to have the correct partners when you're involved in shipping internationally. It's for this reason that Parcel2Go works tirelessly to offer the best shipping rates and an ever increasing range of worldwide shipping options."
Figures released by the Office for National Statistics last week showed that British companies achieved a record monthly high in August in terms of the value of goods shipped abroad. Goods worth a total of £25.5bn were exported – the highest value since records began in 1998. The UK's trade deficit narrowed during the month to £7.8bn, down from £8.2bn the previous month and well down on the forecast figure of £8.8bn.
Richard added: "The recent official figures were welcome news and highlight the important role that UK businesses are playing in helping to get the British economy back on track. It is important however, that companies get the right support and Parcel2Go will continue to work tirelessly to provide its customers with a reliable, safe and cost-effective way of exporting goods to destination all over the globe."
Parcel2Go Ltd has been offering its customers the opportunity to send a parcel to London, Laos, and everywhere in between, for the past 21 years. Based in Bolton, the company operates a cost effective collection and delivery service using couriers such as Parcelforce and DHL throughout the UK, Europe, and countries across the world.
