Liam Smyth – Director of Trade Facilitation – British Chambers of Commerce
“As part of my role at the Chamber of Commerce I advise and consult
with a wide range of businesses and organisations”
In tandem with his work at the BCC Liam has led the development of ChamberCustoms since 2018 working with the accredited Chamber Network to create a team of over 150 agents delivering for traders across the UK.
The British Chambers of Commerce sits at the heart of a unique network of businesses across the UK and around the world.
The 53 Accredited Chambers which make up our UK network are trusted champions of businesses, places, and global trade. Together, we represent tens of thousands of businesses of all shapes and sizes, which employ almost six million people across the UK.
We also have a powerful international Network with over 70 British Chambers of Commerce and business groups located in every continent of the world and directly linked to UK-based Chambers of Commerce.
Working together, we help firms of all sizes to achieve more. We believe it’s our relationships with others that lead us to achieve goals beyond those we could ever achieve alone. We’re the only organisation that helps British businesses to build relationships on every level, in every region and nation of the UK.
Customs clearance agents, customs training providers and customs consultants for UK businesses trading Internationally
We are different from other customs brokers and customs clearance services as we harness the reach, expertise and knowledge of the British Chambers of Commerce network across the UK to offer an unbeatably fast, reliable and compliant service.
ChamberCustoms is the only customs agent with direct links to all air, sea and land port terminals in the UK.
Our borders have changed. In 2022, the rules of the game have shifted and traders need to build or reset their customs processes.
