Export help


Greater Shepparton Export Network helps local businesses find their way through the export minefield.

Renewed Government support for the Greater Shepparton Export Network will enable this valuable program to continue to deliver information and export training to local businesses.
Operating out the Greater Shepparton Business Centre, the network updates business operators on export related information, provides access to free training workshops and detailed information on forthcoming international buying visits and trade fairs.
Co-ordinator of the network Geoff Hay said networking opportunities and field trips are also on the agenda. Last year the network visited the Port of Melbourne.
"It was a huge success and provided existing and potential exporters with a terrific insight to the export process," Mr Hay said.
"Exporting can be a difficult area for businesses and the more information businesses have, the better equipped they are to deal with issues that may arise. If you have an export business plan that is not quite current, or contemplating exporting but do not have an export strategy in place then I encourage you to come along."
Strathmerton company BWR Machinery imports Marshall effluent tankers and Fleming hay machinery and trailers as well as exporting vintage tractors to the United Kingdom and Netherlands.
Owners Bill and Kathy Ford have found the network very helpful.
"The network has helped us to know what to do and how to go about it," Kathy said.
"They have helped us with any information we have needed and any questions we have had.  Every time we ask them something, they have been very helpful and very approachable."
The Ford's source vintage tractors for clients and pack them in containers and send them overseas. They have friend who unpacks and looks after the overseas end of things.
"It's good to know there is something out there for Australian business operators."
