"I would like to say that choosing the right partner for our customs declarations has been vital and I can confirm that our choice to use our local Chamber was a very good one indeed. The support and flexibility of Chambers service has been excellent and in particular the support providing out of hours service, late nights and weekends just to keep our goods flowing has been second to none. The availability of the team to also discuss issues and matters during the last 3 months has been excellent."
