Overcoming the supply chain challenges and successfully managing post transition trade

Overcoming the supply chain challenges and successfully managing post transition trade

In this session we explored how ready UK businesses are for Brexit, what are the most significant challenges to efficient and cost effective supply chain operations and what steps are being taken by companies to mitigate any risks and manage trade with the EU post the Brexit transition period. Using feedback from UK businesses to gain an insight into:
  • The expectations and concerns around the impact of Brexit.
  • The preparedness of UK firms for Brexit.
  • The disruption to Brexit planning due to COVID-19.
  • The steps being taken to prepare for the impact of Brexit on supply chains
