LV Shipping is ultimately Dutch-owned (founded in 1921 with HQ in Rotterdam) and has been trading in the UK since 1986 where it was established as a result of involvement in the oil and gas sector, a sector in which it is still very much involved today.

Over recent years the company has grown globally to now include own offices in USA, Brazil, Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Malaysia.

Kevin has travelled extensively on business over many years including several visits to China, Russia, India, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, UAE and Malaysia.

Kevin is based at the Liverpool (Birkenhead) office of LV Shipping, one of the company’s ten UK branch offices (which include also Great Yarmouth, Felixstowe, Southampton, Tilbury, Aberdeen and Heathrow);  he is married with three children, and in his spare time enjoys playing 5-a-side football and is a keen supporter of Tranmere Rovers Football Club.


Tracey Renshaw, Import Export Support Ltd

Many importers and exporters find there is a shortage of consultancy services with experience in representing blue-chip companies to HMRC. Tracey Renshaw recognised this shortfall in expertise and in 2014 launched Import Export Support to provide key insight and cost-saving services to the industry.

In her career as a qualified accountant Tracey developed an understanding of working with HMRC and the complexities of import and export tax in the UK. At Marks & Spencer Tracey moved up to Head of Customs and Excise, where she took the lead in negotiating with HMRC. By focussing on the classification of duty on womenswear, Tracey helped M&S save over £1million in import taxes. Finding she thrived on overcoming supply and import challenges, Tracey continued to uncover new cost-saving solutions for M&S. Tracey’s experience and knowledge was developed at Jaeger where she headed up the International Shipping Department.
