With Brexit negotiations still underway, the UK faces uncertainty regarding the impact any deals will have, on the way in which we store and transport goods in and out of the UK to the rest of Europe.
Currently the UK benefits from free movement of goods within Europe. With no caps and less processing, paperwork and border controls, we are able to move goods quickly to their desired destination. This is extremely beneficial, especially given the shortage of warehousing stock (due partially to an increase in demand from e-commerce retailers) across the UK.
However post-Brexit this situation could change. Those companies importing large quantities into the UK may need to start planning to store more goods at any given time; due to increased costs, lengthened delivery time frames and in order to maintain economies of scale.
Similarly, those companies exporting frequently to Europe could face the same issue. They may consider setting up a facility in an EU member state, either their own or as part of a third party premise. Along with the lack of UK warehousing stock, this could lead to companies needing to segregate their premises or build designated areas within their newly rented spaces.
Westgate’s Flexiwall is the perfect solution to help facilitate this.
Flexiwall offers a permanent yet relocatable partition that boasts dust, temperature, odour and cross contamination control. Not only can it be installed quickly to ensure next to no downtime, it offers a clean installation for minimal disruption.
Westgate’s Flexiwall product is completely adaptable to any future changes that your business might need; crucial for the uncertainty that Brexit negotiations bring. The entire wall can be completely removed without any lasting damage to the premises – vital in a rented or third party space. Flexiwall can also be reconfigured and relocated to adapt to changes in storage requirements.
