Dedicated hotline and online service launched for UK exporters

  • New export hotline and online service will help more British businesses export to Europe.
  • ‘One-stop shop’ brings together UK government information, making it easier for exporters to access advice and support
  • The UK exported £288 billion worth of goods to the rest of Europe last year.

British businesses exporting to Europe will now be able to access one-to-one advice via a new phone and online service launched today.

Following extensive engagement with businesses, the Department for International Trade (DIT) is making it easier for exporters and those considering exporting to access the information they need to export to the rest of Europe.

From queries around rules of origin, to guidance on recognising professional qualifications and entering new markets, the Export Support Service will provide a single point of contact. It will help exporters navigate a range of complex information simply and quickly.

Europe is a key destination for high-quality UK goods and services. In 2020 alone, the UK exported £288bn worth of goods to Europe - with medicinal and pharmaceutical products, and cars among the top five.
