Brexit Supply Chain

What is the cause for supply chain concern?

Brexit Border Policies > Shipment Delays > Hidden Costs > Supply Chain Breakdown

With a deadline looming, negotiations insecure and a ‘no-deal’ Brexit still a possibility the impact to business operations remain uncertain. Importing goods from Europe may face new border policies that could impose a dangerous risk to the working operations of your supply chain.   

Risk > Low  -  Impact > HIGH

If one believes in our government's ability to negotiate a smooth deal and transition then the risk to supply chains and operations should remain low.  But it’s the 'what if' scenario; what if borders go up, new procedures or duties are imposed and suddenly the materials you want are on the other side of the Channel and we can’t get them over without a delay?  The impact to your operations could be significantly high.
