Supply chain certainty

The UK has officially left the EU as of 31st January 2020. A transition period is now in place and is scheduled to last until December 31st 2020. During this transition period the trading relationship with the EU remains the same and business will be conducted as usual.

Whilst the specific outcomes of the Free Trade Agreement negotiations are not yet known, with CHEP’s superior scale and depth of expertise, we are well positioned to support customers through any required changes in preparation for the end of the transition period.

We have been proactively engaging our customers both in the UK and EU to ensure we can support them with their Brexit mitigation plans. We are actively analyzing and preparing for any potential changes so that we will be able to serve our customers and industry in the future.

We recommend that our customers identify how Brexit plans might affect their requirements - specifically in relation to equipment volumes and specifications - and let us know as quickly as possible so that we can work together to minimise any potential impact

How is CHEP preparing for Brexit

Following the UK leaving the EU on the 31st January 2020 we have now entered a transition period, during which there will be no regulatory changes. Throughout this period CHEP will continue to mitigate against all possible Brexit scenarios.

Since the Brexit referendum, CHEP has put a project plan in place to proactively minimize disruption to the business and our customers:

  • CHEP has appointed a Brexit Lead Director to coordinate all Brexit activities for the Company.  We have also set up a Brexit taskforce covering all key areas of the business and a Steering Committee overseeing progress and making business critical decisions. 
  • CHEP is actively working to raise awareness around critical supply chain impacts with various government and industry bodies. We will continue collaborating with our customers, our industry, and the UK and European governments in an effort to avoid negative impacts and unnecessary costs for supply chains, which could ultimately increase the cost of food and other goods for consumers. Specifically, we are focused on ensuring that the free and unencumbered movement of goods is facilitated, that unnecessary complexity and costs for supply chains, businesses, and consumers are avoided, and that environmental concerns are appropriately addressed.
