The Importance of Keeping the Supply Chain Moving
22nd July 2020
The UK big freeze during 2009/10 winter over a three week period cost insurers more than £14bn.
For businesses in the FMCG sector, especially in perishables, the greatest impact was the distribution to transport between manufacturers, distribution centres and retailers which cost more than £400m per day!
Our industry doesn’t have control of the Highways network but we can certainly keep distribution yards, retail centres and other key sites moving in the winter months.
