In addition to this procurement program, the Alabama SBDC Network also hosts another specialty program, the Alabama International Trade Center.
The William R. Bennett Alabama International Trade Center, located at the University of Alabama since 1979, provides export research, technical trade consulting services, training programs, and trade financing solutions to Alabama’s small business community. Its dedicated staff includes professionals that specialize in international sales & marketing, logistics, business strategy, and finance.
The Trade Specialists at AITC work hand in hand with our procurement counselors to assist Alabama companies with questions regarding ITAR and EAR compliance. These Trade Specialists can also help new to export companies with identifying target markets, finding key customers, and financing import/export transactions.
