About us

As we move from an era of opening markets, through the depression of 2008, we find more companies requesting more protection in more countries. Trade keeps increasing but cost through compliance, duties and other barriers to trade keep adding layers that make actual trading more difficult.

XA understands these complexities and has been advising companies on how to navigate this complex terrain for years. From anti-dumping to duty removals.

From disputes with Customs to planning so these disputes can be avoided, XA understands.
