#Ports&Shipping - State agency Bord Bia has published a a strategy guide to assist Irish food and drink manufacturers to identify operations partners and establish more efficient distribution channels.

As the Irish Farmers Journal reports increased lead times, especially for short shelf life products, in conjunction with a complex and intense supply chain has been highlighted as the key problem for Irish food and drink companies post-Brexit. In its latest report, Bord Bia has outlined what different logistics service providers are doing in preparation for Brexit.

Research suggests that companies are hiring more people with customs experience, reviewing shipping lines to avoid the UK landbridge, expanding the use of unaccompanied trailers on shipping legs, increasing the number of warehouses at ports and introducing double deck trailers to increase capacity in efforts to maintain smooth and efficient transport.

However, it has been highlighted that the Dublin port does not have sufficient capacity to accommodate significant increases in queued or parked vehicles that may result if processing times increase. For further reading on the story click the link here.
