On 1 January 2021 the transition period for the UK leaving the European Union will end, and with negotiations taking place virtually this year, business leaders in logistics and supply chain are planning for uncertainty.
To guide you through the coming months, Logistics Manager will host a webinar on Tuesday 9 June at 10.30am, to bring senior decision makers up-to-speed with the very latest issues regarding the cross-border flow of goods between the UK and its largest trading partner.
By attending this webinar you will learn:
- What international logistics operations need to do to prepare for 2021.
- Why process management has never been more important.
- How businesses can trade effectively without interruption.
This 45 minute free-to-attend webinar is the first in a series of supply chain specials from Logistics Manager in June, looking at the hottest topics in the sector.
