UK Trade Agency Partners with Altios to Grow US Exports

As Altios is already a partner of companies that are developing internationally, they know the market well and which steps to take.

Head of Trade Services at DIT’s office in New York
Challenge
  • The U.S. is an essential market for the DIT in both inward and outward investments and exports. To reach 100,000 new exports into the U.S. by 2020, the agency needed a partner with in-country teams knowledgable on the dynamics of the American marketplace.
  • The agency selected Altios due to its expertise and knowledge in both markets, and its in-country teams.
Solution
  • To complement DIT’s services, Altios provided a range of services to aid companies in both export and expansion.
  • Services provided by Altios as part of the partnership include distribution strategy, product registration, franchising, foreign investment, administrative and accounting management, in addition to new services, as required.
Result
  • The partnership with Altios provided DIT with a flexible and open relationship on which to build its full offering of client services.

  • As the trade agency was looking for on-the-ground support, Altios teams in both the U.S. and the U.K. could provide the knowledge and expertise required by its clients.
