With over 30 years’ experience in the logistics industry, it’s fair to say that Import Services has seen a wide range of economic, financial and political changes.

Brexit however, provides a new challenge for UK businesses, especially those supplying the Continental European markets

With the outcomes still unclear, Import Services is exploring likely scenarios to assist Clients in their planning. In this respect the views from Import Services have been featured by the BBC over the last few months helping to provide insight on key topics including labour, tariffs and trade.

Operating under CFSP from bonded facilities within Southampton’s Container Port Zone’ Import Services manages retail logistics supply chains including VAT & Duty processing on behalf of their Clients. The latter comprise companies sourcing products from the Far East and selling to retailers and direct to consumers, across the UK, Eire and Continental European markets.

Supply chain efficiency is now more important than ever to compete successfully as vendors in the new world of retailing. Supply chain modelling shows in the majority of cases a single logistics hub comprising a generic stock holding to meet bespoke demands of individual customers, in diverse customs regimes on an order by order basis, is the optimal route to market through Brexit transition.
