How has COVID-19 affected International Logistics?
Posted on 20.12.2020
The ongoing pandemic continues to be a challenge for many businesses globally and it is uncertain when it, or the new precautions and measures to fight it, will come to an end. With this in mind, we have continued to innovate and improve our own methods as a reliable international courier and specialists in time critical logistics.
Almost every company involved with international freight will be warehousing and distributing products either made in China, the world’s largest manufacturer, or products made from Chinese materials. With the large outbreaks there and full manufacturing shutdowns to deal with them, the global supply of many products and raw materials was, for some time, unstable.
However it has bounced back and we remain at the forefront when it comes to expedient transport of in-demand products, medical equipment, and quality components.
European countries have had different levels of outbreaks with some faring much better than others. How badly they have been affected has dictated how they have reacted with regard to restrictions on freight in and out of individual countries and of the EU as a whole. Nevertheless, we remain committed to our logistics partners in all international destinations whose expert knowledge has allowed our multinational team to handle these turbulent times smoothly.
Brexit is around the corner and with it come new rules and regulations for all trade from outside the UK, preparing for this as well as dealing with COVID-19 could be too much for some businesses. AMCO is a founding member of the Customs Clearance Consortium, and we will prepare all of our subscribers for a seamless post-Brexit transition. With premium logistic consulting at a below-market-rate your company will be ready for HMRC customs in the event of a no-deal Brexit and remain secure in the COVID economy.
