Material Handling Equipment Provider Urges Food Sector to Optimise Efficiency Amidst Post-Brexit Import Control Delays

Midland Pallet Trucks, a leading provider of material handling equipment, offers a timely perspective on the latest developments surrounding the introduction of post-Brexit checks on food, plant, and animal produce arriving in Britain. As the government confirms a fifth delay – pushing the start of these checks to the end of January next year – it has become increasingly crucial for businesses operating in the food sector to optimise their efficiency on this side of the supply chain to mitigate potential delays.

The decision to delay the commencement of new controls on imports, initially scheduled for late October, has been driven by a desire to give businesses more time to prepare after engaging with industry stakeholders. While this delay may provide a temporary respite, companies must use this time wisely and equip themselves to navigate the upcoming changes efficiently.

As the introduction of controls on goods imported from the EU inches closer, businesses in the food sector need to be proactive in streamlining their operations. One essential aspect of achieving this efficiency is using high-quality material handling equipment. These tools are pivotal in ensuring the smooth flow of goods through the supply chain, reducing the risk of delays and disruptions.

“We understand the challenges that food sector businesses face in light of these delays and changing regulations”, says Phil Chesworth, Managing Director of Midland Pallet Trucks. “We offer a comprehensive range of material handling solutions designed to enhance efficiency along the supply chain”.
