Navigating Brexit uncertainty together

Ensure your supply chain is prepared for what happens next.

New Brexit challenges and opportunities they unfold

The Trade and Cooperation Agreement will go down in history as a remarkable undertaking. This is the first time such a comprehensive agreement has been concluded between the EU and another country in such a short span of time. The Agreement has triggered businesses to embrace alternative supply chain models, accelerating positive change across the logistics industry.

However, trade through the UK is far from ‘business as usual’. Currently, the UK is facing an acute shortage of lorry drivers due to the ending of recruitment from the EU, self-employment tax reforms that have intensified the outflow of EU drivers, and a backlog of driving tests caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. The logistics industry in the UK is driving the right conversations regarding their most pressing challenges ahead.
