BIFA, UKWA talk Brexit impact on forwarding, warehousing, logistics


The British International Freight Association (BIFA) and United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) have organised an event to provide their freight forwarding and warehouse logistics members an update on current issues affecting their respective sectors, in light of looming changes to the trade environment triggered by Brexit.
Discussions will focus on ways to prepare for amendments to customs procedures. Related issues range from risk management in the new technology-driven logistics world, the logistics skills agenda and apprenticeships. One thorny topic is supply and demand within the logistics property market, a joint press release said.
"There is still huge uncertainty about what the Brexit implications are for trade," said BIFA director general Robert Keen. "We have heard all sorts of facts and figures, but have tried not to speculate too much," he said.
"Nonetheless, it is important that we consider the impact that the various Brexit scenarios might have on international trade and on the freight forwarding, warehousing and logistics companies that underpin that trade," Mr Keen said.
The event will be held at the De Vere Beaumont Estate, Windsor, on May 18, starting from 15:30 and concluding with a drinks reception, according to Shipping Gazette.
