Adding to that are the impacts of the sudden COVID-19 pandemic that has pushed businesses across the globe to a point of utter uncertainty. Therefore, given that a significant number of small and large companies are in the supply chain, it is of utmost importance to strengthen the supplier base and prepare it to adapt to the upcoming trading regimes to prevent themselves from the negative implications of Brexit. To that end, considering the uncertainty in the trading relationship between the UK and Europe and the effects of the pandemic, companies in the UK are now are emphasizing responsiveness and resilience than cost and efficiency.
