With Brexit around the corner, UK-related supply chains will likely need re-engineering, ranging from changes of mode of transport to adapted inventory strategies. The uncertainties about Brexit make it challenging for any company that exports out of the UK or imports into it, to prepare adequately for the time after March 29, 2019. Panalpina is continuously evaluating the situation from a supply chain perspective and remains in close contact with its customers that are affected by Brexit.
