Sue Wright
Sue began her international trade career over 30 years ago as a junior shipping clerk for an engineering and manufacturing company. Inspired by her work she quickly progressed and saw this as a career path going on to study to post graduate level with The Institute of Export. She moved on after several years to take up a shipping manager role for an engineering company. The work involved project managing contracts of supply and delivery across the world and working with Letters of Credit for payment. There were multiple parties involved in the cross-trade movements with Customs and HMRC compliance being paramount. Some of this work involved Special Import Procedures, Import Licences and Controls of various items. In 2010, with this vast amount of knowledge, Sue started Exporter Services and delivers courses in various areas of International Trade.
