Have you planned for longer customs clearance times? Have you considered re-routing your shipments? Could rising costs force a re-evaluation of supply chains?

Your logistics and tariff exposure could look very different after Brexit.

Brexit has brought the Supply Chains of organisations into sharp focus. Some are affected by the risk of disruption; delays at our ports impacts flows to and from the continent but also the Republic of Ireland. For others, they simply don’t know: they rely on others to import/export goods, to complete paperwork and assume that these commercial partners will be prepared for Brexit impacts. Both operations risk and supplier impacts can be identified and managed.

How can KPMG help?

We can help map out the physical supply chains of time sensitive products – helping to ensure lower risk ports and less impacted transport modes are used. We can help identify mitigations (e.g. inventory build and service level changes) which might be sensible precautions. We can also help identify which suppliers, of goods and services, are most likely to be disrupted by Brexit and then help measure and monitor these suppliers to reduce your total supply chain impact.
