An added advantage is the co-location of our strong partnership with Cumbria Growth Hub which has a useful web portal informing sme sized businesses about supply chain basics, how to set up a new business, how to export through to helpful guidance on supply chain activity and how to prepare to develop your presence in supply chains.
