New research from leading European service logistics specialist, Carousel Logistics, has revealed that almost half of UK and German manufacturing businesses believe they have time to prepare their supply chains for Brexit, but they have called for clarity to allow them to do so.

In an exclusive survey of senior logistics and supply chain professionals from 80 multinational organisations in the UK and Germany, Carousel found that 46% believe they will have time to prepare for Brexit (while just 18% believe they will not), but 50% still feel in the dark about the specifics of what is required. Only one in five UK companies feel informed about the consequences of Brexit; as one respondent commented: “Until we receive more guidance on the likely outcomes of trade negotiations it’s difficult to plan anything.”
