Chamber International teams with Tate Freight

BUSINESS organisation Chamber International has joined forces with a company which supports businesses trading overseas.

Members of Bradford-based Chamber International, which supports businesses that are considering importing or exporting, can now subscribe to a detailed export manual after it signed a partnership with Tate Freight Forms, part of the Tate Group, a company which specialises in providing accurate, up-to-date information for businesses looking to import or export.

Tate Freight Forms was established in 1981 to provide documentation, training and expert guidance on the intricacies of international trade. Its export guide, which is now available through Chamber International, carries information on over 200 countries and gives detail on everything from Customs procedures and tariffs to what information exporters need to declare on invoices.
