EDM were crowned PD Ports Northern Powerhouse Exporter of the year 2018. Stay tuned for news of the 2019 competition!
The PD Ports Northern Powerhouse Export Awards and International Trade Campaign in association with HSBC brings together businesses from across the North to recognise and celebrate their entrepreneurial exporting achievements as well as encourage others to increase their export potential.
Exporting and international trade remain central to the UK’s economic growth agenda and this campaign and export awards are about recognising those entrepreneurial, wealth creating companies that are selling their products, services and expertise in scores of overseas markets. It is vital that we appreciate and recognise those exporters who have made the transition from great local companies to potentially world class exporting businesses based in the north of England.
Exporting continues to present an opportunity for the north of England to bring immediate and sustainable growth to its economy and with this in mind we need to pass the baton to SMEs across the Northern Powerhouse to consider exporting as a realistic opportunity for growth.

The international trade campaign will continue, with our Around the World in 80 Trades feature profiling exporters across the UK, and with more regular content across the BQ website on international trade.
