Starting am Import Export or Trade Business in Bristol

Waterfgront in BristolAs a company, we have been based in Bristol (and Pontypridd Wales) for over 15 years. Bristol as a city has grown significantly in that time and is one that I think is going to be an important location in the future. Evidence supports this idea with the introduction for example of the electrification of the railway network through to Bristol (and also extending through to wales after that). If the reflection of house prices in Bristol are any sign of the developing importance of the city as a hub, Bristol is a great place be to be based.

What’s makes Bristol a good Location?

Strategically in a geographical and locational sense, Bristol is beautifully positioned city given that it is based at the entrance to the south-west England (Devon, Cornwall and Somerset), within touching distance of south Wales (just across the bridge) and only 2 hours from London by train. With its own international airport and connected nationwide via the M4 motorway, it is not hard to see why so many businesses are choosing Bristol as a base. Airbus, Mathew Clark Wholesale, Mitie, Kerry Ingredients UK, RSJ International, ALD Automotive and Nisbets UK. For those of you looking to specialise in international trade involving the need to export and/or import freight, Bristol works very well for multi-modal forms of freight with strong rail, road, air and connected sea freight options. As an exporter Bristol can be a perfect location in which to be based.
