Richard Barlett is the Managing Director of Export Unlocked. Richard has worked in logistics for over 30 years running his own forwarding business before he set up ‘Export Unlocked’ in 2016.
An enthusiast for all things to do with world trade Richard has vast experience in understanding all aspects of both importing and exporting globally and works closely with the ICC Academy in Singapore, The British Chambers of Commerce, and Santander Bank delivering training in Brexit Compliance, international strategy, Incoterms, Rules of Origin and commodity codes, understanding Exporting / Importing and Customs Compliance.
Richard’s work has taken him around the world giving him valuable insights and a strong understanding of how different markets operate when it comes to importing and exporting. Recently he has presented in Genève for the World Trade Organization (WTO), in Doha for Qatar Development Bank, and in both Northern and the Republic of Ireland delivering customs workshops. It was with a recent project for a UK-based company, that he saw an opportunity for Export Unlocked by becoming a member of BABC-PNW and therefore the BritishAmerican Business Network (BABN). He helped the UK company establish offices in the US with a 3PL warehouse, its own brokerage, and direct shipments from Taiwan and Shanghai into Nevada, therefore seeing the opportunity to also help US companies into the UK on a similar basis.
