Chamber launches extended benefits package for international members


Tuesday 6 January 2015



Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce has launched a new, enhanced package of benefits to support companies trading internationally.

The new Global Membership package provides a year’s worth of cost-savings and includes access to informative services that keep exporters up-to-date with current procedural requirements and enable members to share best practice with other successful traders. There is also enhanced support from the Chambers’ experienced international trade team.

Another key feature is online access to Tate’s Export Guide, the leading international trade reference publication covering the essential requirements for documentation and procedures involved in exporting to over 240 countries. It’s included in every company’s Global Membership package, enabling more expensive subscriptions held with other providers to be cancelled.

John Bridge OBE, Chief Executive of Cambridgeshire Chambers of Commerce, said:
“UK companies are already profiting from opportunities overseas with exports to the EU increasing by £0.6 billion in October 2014 compared to the previous month. Exports outside the EU increased even further during the same period, up £0.8 billion compared with September 2014. This demonstrates that there are opportunities out there and many UK companies are already taking steps to benefit from them.

“Whether you’re a seasoned exporter or are just starting to consider new markets abroad, the new package includes many cost-saving benefits and services for companies that will help you remain compliant and profitable when operating overseas.”
