BREXIT: Have you prepared for a potential bottleneck in the cooling chain?

Brexit is planned to take place soon, either with a deal or with no deal. Preparations have been made in several sectors, such as food, logistics and pharma, but there are still many unanswered questions. In particular, specialists in the cold supply and/or cooling chains have their own specific worries and queries. A back-up plan that integrates rental cooling and climate control can take some of those worries away.

Scenarios for the different options - from a hard to a soft Brexit - can be drafted in order to get a better grasp of the situation. Examples are risk analyses and estimating cost implications, as well as answering questions such as:• Where are there likely to be expected or unforeseen bottlenecks/obstructions in the food, perishables and pharma logistic chains? At customs or somewhere else in the chain?• What are customers doing and what will the effect be on the warehousing capacity for every link in the logistic chain of temperature-sensitive products? • Should we invest in more climate-controlled capacity or should we not create any extra conditioned room for now? The latter question and the accompanying cost issue is a key topic for lots of organisations at the moment and it is clear that organisations want flexibility. Add to this the ever more extreme summer conditions and you have plenty food for thought.
