Exporting is one of the most important parts of every fashion company’s sales strategy. It is also one of the most unpredictable ones as it is prone to fluctuating economic and political conditions in the world and getting it right is not as simple as packing the box to ship.
The upcoming exit from European Union is potentially going to greatly affect the way in which you work with your clients and distributors and it is crucial to understand how to prepare for possible changes to ensure the continuous growth of your brand.

How to control and minimise costs on foreign exchange transactions
