Compressed air, Brexit and supply chain management

As Brexit is pushed to January 31st 2020, businesses continue to consider the impact and prepare as best they can. But what impact does Brexit have if your compressor needs a new part or you need a new compressor?

Brexit proofing supply chain

On a recent trip to Amsterdam to install and commission a diagnostic solution for a major client, it occurred to Cambs Compressors that Brexit proofing their supply chain would be a sensible precaution. The Amsterdam project was to set-up a European based distribution hub to reassure their customers in Europe that they will continue to receive direct and easy access to products and services.

Cambs Compressors Brexit Plan

Like most businesses Cambs Compressors is dependent upon a mix of suppliers, both British and European. During a service visit to a client near Amsterdam earlier in the year, Annthea and Mark directors of the business considered the possible implications and the best case/worse case scenarios for Cambs Compressors customers - and the following information is the result of this thinking.

What if our overseas manufacturers could no longer ship overnight?

With the supply chain optimisation, everyone has become blasé about ordering from an overseas supplier and acceptant that the part can be shipped overnight within 48 hours in most cases. So Cambs Compressors undertook an exercise to establish what our overseas manufacturers were doing to mitigate the uncertainty over Brexit and the disruption to their supply chains.
