Inevitably, Brexit has had an impact on both existing and future supply chain contracts. This means a potentially huge exercise to review existing agreements to understand how Brexit might affect their viability and whether it is possible to change or break them early.

The number of supply chain managers looking to localise their respective supply chains because of Brexit, according to the latest survey from the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS), shows 63% of EU businesses expect to move their supply chains out of the UK.

Be prepared to change business practices, review core operating models, switch suppliers, renegotiate contracts or move parts of your supply chain activities into new territories.

    3D Printing/ Additive Manufacturing

    Additive Manufacturing (often referred to as rapid prototyping or 3D printing) describes accelerated manufacturing processes of three-dimensional objects such as prototypes and low-volume production, models or other end products.
    Based on computer-generated data models successive layers of various materials such as polyamide or ceramic powders, metal alloys and filaments are laid down under computer control.
    Methods employed are among others stereolithography (SLA), selective laser sintering (SLS) and fused deposition modeling (FDM). Industries profiting from the rapidly developing technology include but are not restricted to the automotive, aerospace and medical sectors as well as educational institutions and the arts.
