How to Manage Brexit-related Supply Chain Risk

Get Supply Chain ready for Brexit


An important function of supply chain management involves ensuring the smooth and uninterrupted flows of products and materials.  Brexit is likely to disrupt the supply chains of manufacturers in Northern Ireland with suppliers in the EU due to the introduction of customs checks and other regulations around product standards.  This topic will help you to identify the supply chain risks associated with Brexit and the drivers of these risks.  You will then be able to formulate strategies for dealing with these risks and develop “what-if” scenarios to help you identify and prioritise each Brexit-related supply chain risk so that it can be managed effectively.
