    Theme: Operational efficiency

    Do you import goods from overseas, operate in international supply chains or export goods? If so, there are some significant changes ahead for when the UK leaves the Customs Union.

    Whilst trade deals and timelines are to be negotiated, there are still preparations that you can start to make for your business. Preparing a plan to manage Brexit now, no matter the final outcome of negotiations, will ensure that you are able to service your customers and continue with business as usual.

    The Cumbria Manufacturing Service will be delivering a free workshop in Penrith in partnership with the Cumbria Business Growth Hub, the Rural Payment Agency and FW Capital. This event will offer you an outline of what Brexit means for small and medium manufacturing firms and provide you with tools to start preparing your business.
