Parcel delivery provider Hermes has teamed up with the UK government’s Department for International Trade (DIT) to inspire and encourage organizations to grow their businesses by exporting goods overseas.

As part of its commitment, Hermes’s in-house experts have already been speaking at a wide variety of events organized by DIT. In addition, Hermes has committed to continually develop its portfolio of international delivery solutions, which already cover 190 countries across the world.

Moving forward, Hermes and DIT will also develop joint research and insight, collaborate in joint marketing initiatives to showcase the ‘Exporting is GREAT’ campaign, and work together to develop products and services that can support UK businesses to prosper internationally.

Luke Batten, international business manager, Hermes, said, “We are extremely proud to be working with DIT on the ‘Exporting is GREAT’ campaign. We are wholeheartedly committed to supporting the growth of our clients’ overseas business, regardless of their size, and this campaign is the perfect platform to help us do so. The events have already provided us with a great opportunity to encourage SMEs to export and we look forward to contributing to the future success of the campaign.”

Baroness Rona Fairhead, minister for trade and exports, said, “The DIT is delighted to be partnering with Hermes to inspire and support UK businesses as they explore the opportunities offered by exporting.

“There is great demand for UK goods and services across the world, and we look forward to working with Hermes to develop products and services that can support UK businesses to prosper.”
