Supply Chain North East and Ward Hadaway join forces

This significant event will bring new challenges to business – and almost all companies (regardless of size, sector, or service) will be impacted.

With challenges created by the global pandemic, the focus for many businesses has been on surviving through 2020. With the additional challenges posed because of EU Exit, it’s more important than ever that businesses prepare and plan for eventualities.

To help support businesses in the region to explore what the EU transition means for them, and to identify any changes they need to make to their working practices to ensure they can continue business as usual, Supply Chain North East have teamed up with Ward Hadaway to design a comprehensive package of workshops. The workshops have been created to delve deeper into what the UK transition means for different areas and operations within the business and what you need to do to maintain “business as usual”.

Topics covered include: Employment law, Alternative supply chains, Intellectual property, Supplier contract terms & conditions, CE marking, E-commerce sale of good, Data transfer and export and Cyber security.

Supply Chain North East has already helped firms face the COVID-19 situation in several ways, including providing grants to support the demand of PPE products, developing workshops aimed at crisis management, recovery planning and business resilience, and creating a new peer to peer ‘list and search’ platform called Supply Chain Exchange.

And as well as continuing to cope with COVID-19, Supply Chain North East Business Advisor John said:


“All companies need to realise that the EU Exit will affect them - from staffing and trade issues to sales and transportation of goods.

“Supply Chain North East is delighted to be working with Ward Hadaway to help companies understand the potential implication of EU Exit and to also help them prepare and be ready for 2021.”

Colin Hewitt of Ward Hadaway said:

"Ward Hadaway are committed to helping the region's businesses to navigate Brexit which will come as a significant challenge to most businesses in the region."
