  • Importing goods into the UK after Brexit - almost a year on, what have we learnt and what’s to come in 2022?

    At the start of 2021, the political landscape across Europe changed. It was the start of a new era as the UK left the European Union.

For many of us in the UK, we've adopted the Black Friday tradition to kick off our Christmas shopping. In 2019, £8.6 billion was spent across Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

    Warehouses are growing. From the horrea of Ancient Rome (yes, really; the Romans invented warehousing) to the billions of square feet we currently dedicate to warehouse space in the UK, it’s safe to say that the sector is growing at an exponential rate. Consumer habits show an uptick in online shopping, unlikely to change even in a post-Covid environment, meaning that not only do warehouses need to continue their physical growth, they also need to strengthen from a technological perspective to cope with the logistical pressure of the online shopping revolution.
