Centigo looks to Post-Brexit inefficiencies of Supply Chains
Ragnar Agnell at Centigo, a BSCC Patron Member, has written a recent commentary on the challenges of post-Brexit supply chains. His piece discusses some of the immediate costs which may come as a result of the UK leaving the EU due brokerage fees, increases in transport rates and/or higher raw material prices. All of these processes are non-value-adding activities which have reduced the focus upon supply chain optimisations. The rise in ‘outsourcing clearance activities’ has led to this option being a buyer’s market and has thus pushed some businesses to alternatively opt for more automation.
Agnell continues to discuss, the potential risk of mid-sized companies exclusively focusing upon their domestic markets instead of also benefiting the opportunities of tariff-free UK-EU trade. Centigo, a business of 300 consultants, hold expertise in customs and border clearance which could prove beneficial for businesses looking for plans, leads and development for trading with the UK.
