The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the global economic landscape.
This, coupled with Brexit, has meant England has already seen delays in supply chains at southern ports pre-Christmas.

And businesses are only being challenged further, as they learn how to navigate around new paperwork, rules and checks.
As a result, we are seeing some distinct shifts in supply chain and logistics strategies.
Now, more than ever, businesses need confidence that their supply chains can cope with the changing landscape and that their goods can reach their end destinations.
These challenges have highlighted the need for businesses to reassess their supply chain strategies, building back greener and driving forward greater efficiencies in the transportation of goods.
As we emerge from this crisis, ports will play an important role in an integrated trade and digital ecosystem that allows for seamless trade.
At Peel Ports, we provide businesses looking to distribute goods around the globe with agile supply chain strategies which drive forward change and meet new levels of demand for products and services.
Taking a customer centric approach to supply chain solutions, we are able to solve supply chain complexity through the provision of end-to-end solutions.
Whether that’s full processing, product finalisation or ample storage solutions, we can provide a full range of tailor-made solutions across a vast spectrum of commodities.
Our progressive approach ensures we are at the cutting edge of supply chain and logistic facilities.
Greener supply chain strategies
Part of this shift also includes adopting more sustainable practices to reduce CO2 emissions and help businesses ‘build back greener’.
By investing in our port locations across the country, we want to encourage businesses to use ports closer to the origin or destination of the cargo, reducing road or rail miles, costs and carbon.
By choosing a port in close proximity to the market, and alternative modes of shipping, such as unaccompanied RORO or containers, you also minimise the risk of disruption as a result of congestion and border control.
As operators and cargo owners look to understand how best to adjust their globalised business models to safeguard against future challenges, we can help.
By rethinking supply chain models, we can challenge the status quo to remain agile in an unpredictable world.
