Brexit

Procurement and supply management professionals have a unique and important view, and control over how to mitigate impact on supply chains and build stronger networks. As guardians and suppressors of panic within their own organisations they have a great opportunity to implement not just best practice but sustaining the future of their business in a post-Brexit trading relationship with the EU and beyond. Throughout the Brexit process CIPS is gathering the view of procurement professionals and reporting on their responses to challenges and opportunities in the first months as port disruptions rattle supply chains and supply chain managers look at new sourcing strategies.

The Brexit Storm

Nearly a quarter of businesses say they will run low on stock in the next few weeks if the situation at the border continues

The survey, of 185 UK and EU supply chain managers who have imported or exported through the UK-EU border since January 1st, found that 60% had experienced delays getting goods into the UK from Europe. Over a third (37%) reported that goods had been delayed by several days. 

The situation is only slightly better in the opposite direction, with 45% having experienced delays getting goods into Europe from the UK and 28% saying goods were delayed by several days. Less than a quarter (24%) said they have not noticed any difference in the time it takes to get goods into the EU from the UK. 

Full story

Dr John Glen, CIPS Economist, said: “Worryingly, it is likely the delays at the border will get worse before they get better. Traffic through the border since January 1st has been low compared to historical levels, but with December stockpiles depleting it won’t be long before trade traffic increases and more pressure is placed on these new border processes.”

What Does Brexit Mean for Procurement?

As we approach the end of the first month post-Brexit, there is concern that these delays will intensify as the volume of goods being moved across the border increases.

How Does Brexit Impact Public Procurement?

The UK government’s green paper on procurement sets out a plan to fundamentally change the structure of public procurement, signalling major changes ahead for buyers
