In every aspect of our business we strive to be as sustainable as possible by minimizing our environmental footprint. This is a continuous effort but one that is very close to our hearts as a business.

With Brexit looming, we established a new company ‘Customs Wise’ to deal with the inevitable customs issues that will arise once Britain leaves the Union. With our years of experiencing in the imports business, we are perfectly placed to advise and to be the go too company for all Customs compliance issues in Ireland and the UK.
