Mr Davis has over 40 years of logistics experience helping companies import and export all over the world – including issues surrounding legal requirements, understanding documents and language barriers.

The Brexit seminar will also feature key speakers Tom Thornton – MD Wells Cargo Logistics Ltd/President IIFA, Carol-Ann O’Keefe Revenue Brexit Unit, Seamus Kavanagh Executive Officer IIFA, and Amanda Mills Local Enterprise Office.

A free Brexit advice package will be presented to attendees.
