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
