The UK has decided to leave the European Union which means we must meet the challenges that this decision will bring and mitigate any potential risks which may arise. We have put into effect a number of strategies in order to make this transition as seamless as possible for our customers. In light of the uncertainty surrounding Brexit, we are doing all we can to ensure business continuity.
We have been working with our logistics partners and suppliers to ensure supply of goods in the event of a hard Brexit and any confusion and delays at the borders. Additionally we employ the services of forwarders and agents who have “Approved Economic Operator” status. As a supplier to many Non-EU countries around the world, Uzin Utz Group is well prepared with the demands of international trade. We are confident that we have the skills and expertise within our administrative staff to be able to cope with and adapt to any changes originated by Brexit.
Potential impact of changes to Customs borders, tariffs, costs and administrative workload have been considered, and also the likelihood of exchange rate volatility. We have researched potential tariff and duty changes and its implications, as well as possible increased lead times. We have reviewed our supply chain to mitigate the impact of any major changes following Brexit and accept that we may need to amend policies and processes once the post Brexit scenario becomes clearer.We will continue to monitor all updates from HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs ) regarding the possibility of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit and communicate any changes to our customers.
We understand that our customer’s concerns and priorities may differ depending on the individual nature of each business, although most interests will lie in the impact of product availability, lead-time and cost implications. Nevertheless we would encourage open dialogue and information exchange with your usual Uzin contact person, who will be happy to note, investigate and act upon any specific query or information request.
