Alegrant’s Culture and Purpose…
Alegrant’s culture is rooted in the rich heritage of international trade. From the Incense route to modern containerships, humans have bartered and exchanged. Trading across borders and bonding with different cultures is part of being humans. It’s who we are as humans, it’s what we do.
But our modern world has made it complex, stressful and chaotic. Our purpose is to untangle the process of international exchange and help the world connect through trade.
We work with our community, linking traders with global expertise to give pragmatic, logical and creative solutions to whatever barriers are stopping them trading.
Global trading does not have to be burdensome, there is an easier way and we are building it. Our mission is to make trading across borders easy, safe and accessible to all businesses, everywhere.
A Word from Alegrant’s Director…
Thank you for your interest! We love it when visitors explore who we are and what we are doing. We just want to make access to compliance advice global, fast and easy for everyone. It’s that simple. The idea came from a conversation with a client (you know who you are!). I was helping them develop a compliance programme. They were struggling with a shipment stuck in Customs in Brazil when the client said: “Wouldn’t it be great if you could help us over there like you help up over here!”. Alegrant was born.
We embarked on the journey of building a simple, reliable access to trusted high-end Customs expertise worldwide. We leveraged technology to bring people together from all continents. We are constantly challenged but we persevere every day because we truly believe that with access to local expertise, traders can flourish internationally. We want to give them a global support of leading trade and Customs experts, a global compliance team of vetted specialists to support the international growth and be on their side when a crisis breaks.
Although we set out to support SME’s, we have been serving large companies to support their global compliance team. We are therefore extremely proud to be able to advise clients from middle-sized companies to Fortune 500 corporations coming from multiple countries and all industry sectors. We are very grateful to our experts, partners and wonderful clients.
Alegrant is now able to offer in-depth Customs expertise in 25 countries and we are growing. We now have a proven ability to bring practical, actionable solutions to clients’ operations as well as a promptness and agility to deliver support.
As we continue to develop trusted solutions to complex global trade and Customs matters, on behalf of our global team of experts and our people around the world, we thank you for your support and we look forward to working with you.

“They are the jurists the most friendly I’ve ever met! Having someone answering with enthusiasm, empathie and drive when the sky is falling on your head, for me, this was new!..”Elena Bou – Business Designer & Strategist – Agence Arborescence – Marseille – France
“As SMS Oilfield grew in size and geographically, we required policies and procedures to export our products and services to minimise the risks of trading internationally. Alegrant came in and provided tailored consultancy and training to our whole management team from business development to finance and logistics. This advice was tailored to the particular challenges our company faces in the oil industry. The policy and procedures developed are embedded in our management system and have proved invaluable as we have grown into three regions.“SMS Oilfield, a Scottish specialist SME providing sensing technology, data analysis and visualisation for the global oil and gas community with now regional hubs in Kuala Lumpur and Abu Dhabi as well as ongoing operations in West Africa and the Middle East.
”HebHomes Limited is a successful and growing Scottish based self-build kit house company. We currently source some of our key supplies from the rest of the EU and are also embarking on an overseas expansion with new sales to the rest of Europe. With no experience of international trade, the prospect of Brexit and its implication on our business has been intimidating and we expected a major hit on our existing business and a reduction in overseas sales. Catherine at Alegrant has de-mystified international trade and the implications of Brexit. Providing customised information to our business and clear guidance we have been able to minimise the impact of Brexit and any tariffs applicable. We are now confident to take forward our internationalisation with all its commercial benefits. “Jean Hamilton, Director HebHomes Limited
“We were very impressed with the Brexit Customs Training Course we received. The course was designed specifically for our business needs and all our questions were answered. We feel confident we are in compliance with HMRC regulations while trading with the EU post Brexit.”James MacSween, Customs & Shipping Supervisor, MacArtney Underwater Technology
”While we focus on delivering the world’s first ‘underground drone’ to grain storage operators and help them Saving Grains, we like to avoid unnecessary bureaucratic complexity putting a stall on our operations, and the Alegrant expert, through a single session, was able to help us understand how to navigate the customs duties landscape during this transition period through very clear language and advice.”Dr Lorenzo Conti, Founder & Managing Director of Crover
