Logistics company Wincanton has announced a partnership with PwC’s supply chain advisory practise where it will look to help UK retailers and suppliers deal with the opportunities and challenges of Brexit.
The duo aim to help with an established 4-stage process from gathering insight through to designing strategic and operational plans.
Adrian Colman, CEO at Wincanton, said: “In order to help our customers through this transition period, we will be aligning our experience of planning some of the UK’s most complex supply chains, with PwC’s intimate understanding of Brexit across a broad range of business challenges, to help customers build workable, dynamic Brexit plans. What this means for our customers is that we can offer help on a strategic and operational level,” he said.
Johnathon Marshall, partner at PwC, said: “Brexit is not something that British industry can take a ‘wait & see’ view on. From a supply chain perspective, businesses need to understand in detail how they buy and sell products and services from around the world. Brexit means that, more than ever, they must understand how these are distributed, the product flows and the tariffs they are currently exposed to, and how these may change depending on the outcome of Brexit,” he said.
