COVID-19: Getting back to business

21st July 2020

Changes to the lockdown rules mean many manufacturers are able to bring more teams back to work and increase production volumes. However, rising infections and the backtrack of lockdown measures in some countries could undermine recovery and continue to disrupt supply chains.

Although business confidence improved in June among both service providers and manufacturers, the recent news of the pausing and reversal of the relaxation of lockdown restrictions in some countries could slow the pace of recovery towards a return to usual production levels. Whilst the UK is experiencing a slow recovery, the ongoing easing of lockdown measures should help to support growth over the rest of the summer.

As a result of persisting COVID-19 spikes, there are considerable ongoing challenges to the transport and logistics sector causing disruptions to international supply chain operations. Within Europe, border controls have been reintroduced in many locations and substantial restrictions on international transport have been imposed. And many manufacturers continue to express concerns over reduced air freight capacity, customs delays and quarantine policies.
