Overseas supply chain difficulties lead to demand for British manufacturers. 
Buy British.

The overseas supply chain continues to experience huge pressures, with the main East West trade line particularly badly impacted. With an increased demand to ship goods, due to Covid restocking and Brexit stock piling, most carriers have deployed additional capacity, but this has led to infrastructure challenges in many ports.

Port congestion allied with reduced resources, due to Covid safety restrictions, has resulted in slower turnaround, long wait times and a backlog of vessels waiting to be discharged, resulting in massive delays. With much needed empty equipment not returning to origin fast enough and haulage availability a major issue, demand is outstripping supply and schedule reliability is suffering badly. As a result, importers are finding it expensive and difficult to secure space with shipping lines from the Far East.

Alternatives such as air, sea air and rail options are available at a cost, but the overall situation is deteriorating, with huge flexibility required from customers, forwarders and ocean carriers.

The situation has prompted a resurgence of interest in British manufacturers, who are able to supply the required goods without incurring the difficulties of the distressed sea freight market conditions. British manufacturing has always shown innovation and resilience, and the current overseas supply chain difficulties are presenting British manufacturers with a huge opportunity.
