In Detail

Specialist one-to-one support is available through the West Midlands Growth Hubs and the Department for International Trade, together with an experienced customs and logistics expert, to help you find the answers to your most pressing questions.

Businesses in the West Midlands are encouraged to take advantage of this free advice clinic to talk through the challenges and issues concerning their international supply chains and import processes since the end of the transition period.

You will speak to expert David Hooper, Managing Director at Hooper & Co International Trade Consultancy.

Why book a 1:1 session?

  • Get advice on changes to import procedures post-Brexit
  • Explore pro-active strategies to effectively manage your supply chain and minimise disruption
  • Find out about future changes to UK import procedures that are coming up later in 2021 and 2022 so that you can prepare now
  • Get bespoke advice on scenarios that are relevant to your business such as temporary imports and the use of special procedures such as Inward Processing Relief and Returned Goods Relief

To register for a clinic your business must be registered in the West Midlands area, and have Import queries directly related to the UK's exit from the EU, and have not previously participated in these Import clinics. In order to help as many businesses as possible, only one 30-minute session may be booked per business, per subject (i.e. 1 x VAT clinic & 1 x Import clinic). If duplication occurs we will email both parties to request only one representative may attend a meeting.

This professional advice service is offered as a fully funded service by the West Midlands Growth Hubs and the Department for International Trade and the sessions are in high demand, with limited availability. If you cannot attend your allocated session or need to postpone for any reason please ensure you notify us at least 24hrs in advance so that the time-slot can be offered to another business. Failure to do so may result in you being unable to book onto future 121 clinics.


Book your own personal one-to-one session with an IMPORT specialist to talk through your import and export queries by using the online booking system below. The 1-2-1 sessions are 30 minutes long. We will be in touch with a time for your slot and link to join your meeting.

Please note: In order to get the full benefit from your 1-2-1, a short questionnaire will be sent to you, via email, in advance of the session. Please take a few minutes to complete and return this form, in order to allow the specialist to prepare the most accurate advice and resources to address your queries.

Please email if you would like to request a particular time (after you have registered below).


This event is free.
