Brexit: the devil in the detail

The shadow of Brexit looms large over the UK and OMBs are concerned. The overwhelming majority (91%) don’t think the Government has provided businesses with enough information to plan effectively for Brexit.

Given the lack of Government information, how can OMBs prepare? ‘The most important thing to do is talk to your supply chain – from your suppliers to your customers,’ says Rowan Crozier, CEO of advanced manufacturer C. Brandauer & Co.

‘We are also considering our stocking of raw materials and looking at alternative methods of shipment – so rather than coming through a port, shipping via air if necessary.’ The business has also begun the process of pre-registering using freight forwarders, in case the UK leaves the EU with no deal.
