Parcel2Go agrees key to small business growth lies with exporting to new markets

July 13, 2012 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
One of the UK's top online parcel delivery specialists has backed the idea that small companies in Britain need to consider making the most of available opportunities in untapped overseas markets.

In its latest economic survey, the British Chambers of Commerce said more businesses were beginning to recognise the value of exporting, increasingly, to countries outside of Europe. Bolton-based online parcel delivery firm Parcel2Go agrees that growth opportunities are out there, and has urged small businesses to research the available options.

Richard Mercer, marketing director at Parcel2Go, said even small businesses that have never considered sending their products to foreign countries before should see how simple it has become to reach customers, no matter whether they are in Tahiti or Chile.

He said: "Times continue to be very difficult for a large number of businesses in the UK it has been well documented just how tough small companies especially are finding it to get access to new finance. It has never been more important for companies to expand their customer base and discover new, potentially lucrative markets.

"The internet has made finding customers on the other side of the world much easier, while reliable, cheap international courier services from the likes of FedEx and ParcelForce, mean shipping abroad is no longer prohibitively expensive or time consuming."

A huge range of international shipping options are available through Parcel2Go, from FedEx's European Economy delivery service to TNT's worldwide express service.

Richard added: "We're inviting businesses of all sizes to discover how simple it can be to start exporting goods abroad through reliable parcel couriers that have experience shipping to all corners of the world. Organising a delivery online makes the process quick and affordable, meaning every firm has the chance to benefit."
