International Stock Management: ‘Global Britain’ or ‘Chaotic Britain’?

In January 2021 will it be a Global Britain or Chaotic Britain for your international stock management strategy?

We know currently the ports are experiencing blockages, we know imports and exports are not going to arrive on schedule, and we do know that the government is planning and preparing for all eventualities. The question is, is your company ready?

Here at MRM, as we continue through Lockdown 2.0, we are business as usual - with some extra hand sanitiser and social distancing in place. Looking ahead we would like to highlight some key differences for 2021 that are starting to emerge and how we can all prepare for them.
