 Look under the surface: Brexit’s hidden issues for buyers and suppliers - Iceberg illustration

Even with the recent agreement on transition, there’s still uncertainty about the final outcome of any UK-EU trade deal. You’re sure you’ve covered all bases with your Brexit response plan. But what about your suppliers – and their own suppliers further down the chain? How much do you know about how ready they really are?

And if you’re a supplier, what actions are your corporate customers likely to take as Brexit rapidly approaches?

In this article our supply chain and procurement experts explore:

  • Possible hidden risks – anything from contracts exposure, to customs issues to people challenges, due to the loss of EU nationals
  • The urgent questions corporate customers should now be asking their suppliers
  • And vice versa…
  • How acting now will give businesses a clear competitive edge
