Worried business owners have started hoarding their assets in an effort to keep their supplies consistent in anticipation of suffering from a bumpy Brexit as the country withdrawals from the EU.
Many companies that manufacture or use non-perishable items for their business are stockpiling enough supplies to keep their business ticking over for up to a year or longer for fear of suffering from an acrimonious split from the EU that could leave their business high and dry, or beset by huge delays to their manufacturing procedures.
Stockpiling raw materials before Brexit happens next March can make sense because most industry experts are predicting that Britain’s ports will seize up and experience long delays in border processing for goods coming into the country.
Switching from a lean business model
While most business operations try to keep costs down to an absolute minimum and run a very lean business model where supplies of raw materials are kept at around ten days worth of production, many companies are now abandoning this strategy in favour of adding extra weeks of supplies in the run-up to Brexit.
Where factories and manufacturing plants may have a fluid stock and storage system that is in constant flow, many facilities don’t have the available space to stockpile raw materials. With limited space available, many manufacturing companies are now turning to using warehouse storage services to help them meet their stockpiling plans.
This means that many UK businesses are now scouting for warehouse storage services and secure storage facilities to stockpile their supplies and raw materials.
Future-proofed business plans
No one can predict what the business landscape will look like post-Brexit, so many companies are now taking it upon themselves to future-proof their business against the likely fallout and outcomes that Brexit may cause, at least in the short-term.
Stockpiling essential raw materials will enable businesses to keep their production lines going and performing efficiently for some time to cushion any potential initial blow from Brexit procedures. Having a better capacity to serve new and existing customers will be ensuring that businesses can meet the challenges that are on the horizon, while potentially at the same time reducing their costs of trying to source raw materials or essential components from overseas during turbulent import / export conditions.
