The uncertainty about what will happen after the 31st December 2020 with the Brexit situation, R & L Slaughter Ltd. has put into place certain plans to ensure continuity of supply. Key areas such as changes to tariffs, customs border delays, and exchange rates, will be closely monitored to minimise the impact to our customers.
Our major suppliers are confident that, although the situation is uncertain, they are significantly prepared to meet this challenge and supplies will be generally unaffected. However, R & L Slaughter Ltd. has increased stock holding of key lines to cover any potential delays and continue to deliver to our customers when required.
We will work with our customers to identify key product lines to ensure sufficient stock is in place at Basildon.
As more information is made available about the Brexit negotiations, we will update our plans.
