International Trade

We are experts in international trade


When the Chambers were first set up in 1860 their aim was to help companies grow by trading overseas, and that hasn’t changed. Sussex Chamber and the Chamber network have always supported business success.


Our network of 53 Chambers of Commerce across the UK knows all about the nuts and bolts of how to set a business on the path to overseas trade. Each Chamber knows its local economy inside out and can provide the advice, training, support and all the encouragement needed by any firm new to the world of exporting.


We also have a growing ChamberCustoms brokerage business that also provides training and advice. It has been built on our years of experience, and the knowledge and success of our trade facilitation activities to date.


ChamberCustoms aim is to help businesses expand and diversify the number of exports from the UK across the world. Its expertise means it can save businesses large chunks of time and resources by dealing with their customs declarations; simplifying the process, filing the forms and covering all additional paperwork.

The international team based at The Sussex Chamber of Commerce provides a range of support and services for exporters and importers. Whether you are an established business or considering trading for the first time, the chamber of commerce is here to help guide you. The support provided by the chamber will help your business within the business community by taking advantage of new markets, increasing sales and reducing costs.
