Talk to the experts

[ March 11, 2014   //   ]

DSV is offering expert advice to traders visiting its stand at the Multimodal exhibition, at the NEC, Birmingham, 29 April – 1 May.

When items as seemingly innocuous as perfumes, dyes or plastics can be classified as ‘hazardous’, businesses can easily fall foul of the regulations when exporting or importing goods. The many rules relating to packaging, labeling and stowing can vary according to a wide range of criteria, and breaking the rules can lead to border delays and penalties.

Chris Malyon, Director Sales & Marketing, DSV Road, says: “We have an amazing range of experience and expertise, so it makes sense to use this opportunity to answer questions which manufacturers, importers or exporters may have about the transport of their materials or products,” says

DSV has arranged to have a DGSA expert available on Thursday 1 May to cover the transport of chemicals and dangerous goods. There will also be experts ready to give advice on warehousing and home delivery, insurance and express shipments. Some of the team will also focus on specific markets: perishables, automotive and aerospace.

Malyon adds: “We have often found that quite a small piece of information or advice can make a huge difference to a business seeking to source from, or export to, new countries. Many small businesses are seeking to expand their product range or the number of countries they export to, so it is important to talk to an expert who can help design the most efficient and cost-effective supply chain. A successful business needs to have availability of product, speed to market and competitive pricing in order to grow its customer base.”

Other areas of expertise which DSV staff will discuss include retail logistics as well as specific regions including Turkey, Scandinavia and the US.
