    Border chaos may mean shop shortages within weeks

    “Food supplies are likely to be the first area where shortages occur, with manufacturers also affected, supply chain expers warn

    Shops will start to run out stock within weeks if chaos at the borders does not ease, according to supply chain experts.

    Six out of 10 supply chain managers said they are running into problems with new customs controls and Covid-19 checks that are delaying goods coming into the UK from Europe, research by the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) found. Delays ran for several days in about a third of cases.

    With stockpiles that were built up ahead of Christmas and in case Britain crashed out of the EU without a deal now running down, the institute warned that shelves could soon start to empty.”

                Shortages are already here. The reason why it is not so noticeable is because the shortages have resulted is less choice rather than empty shelves. The current EU trade deal is not fit for purpose and will not last.
