Navigating Brexit uncertainty together
Ensure your supply chain is ready ahead of the transition.
How will Brexit impact your logistics?
The UK’s departure from the EU, also known as Brexit, is set to cause disruption and challenge the current status quo. Exit from the European Union may have longstanding repercussions on the global economy, particularly international trade. New barriers and tariffs might be imposed on traded goods and companies will need to embrace an alternate business model post-Brexit, particularly around their supply chains.
The transition might be costly, and the exit of the EU preferential trading zone will make sourcing more expensive. The UK will also leave the EU Customs Union requiring extra documentation to move goods in and out of the UK. It is important to understand what changes are coming and how Brexit will impact your business operations. Negotiating with your suppliers and your logistics partners is imperative to avoid significant costs and delays, even more important given the current economic pressures.
Understanding Your Alternatives
Mandatory border controls, additional security checks and extra paperwork will likely result in border delays and continental trucking congestion. A high level of flexibility in logistics options is therefore crucial to manage the flow of materials and goods to minimise risks for business interruptions along supply chains. We have outlined some solutions which can help you to get prepared and to navigate your business through Brexit.
