Brexit is likely to foster uncertainty in international trade, yet, there are ways of facilitating the smooth running of commercial operations, avoiding disruption to your business.
Nuvias made a considerable investment to future-proof its trading assets and enable a smooth transition, whether we face a structured or a hard Brexit.
The business decided early on, well ahead of the Brexit discussion, to invest in EU-zone-based people and facilities. This facilitates continuing trade for both Nuvias, its channel partners and the vendors on its portfolio.
Nuvias EU-zone facilities are located on the German-Dutch border, providing excellent access into Europe. These facilities are additional to the UK based operations. UK and global customers are generally served out of the UK, whereas European customers are served from Venlo, in Holland. Stock holdings in each location have been increased to compensate for potential transport delays.
Nuvias’ four substantial logistics facilities – in Smethwick, Newbury, Gatwick (UK) and Venlo (on the Dutch/German border) – presently hold enough stock for 50 days’ worth of sales and their capacity can be extended during the Brexit period.
Nuvias’ contracted couriers – UPS, DHL and DPD – are ready to provide extended services, handling sensitive loads and covering extended hours. Nuvias’ spares and repairs are held by a third-party with global reach and operations.
Aside from preparing logistically, Nuvias has invested in expert advice regarding legal and financial aspects of Brexit, as well as hiring specialists for its Treasury and Legal departments.
Nuvias is committed to enabling smooth operations for its partners and vendors during this transition period.
