All the different stories and scenarios didn’t make it easy to prepare in a concrete way. So it was, in our opinion, necessary to prepare for more than one scenario, instead of what we thought would happen.
We started with some analysis of the different roads that were possible at that moment. For each different possibility we made a plan to continue our UK transports. In this way we could not be surprised by whatever decision the government would make. Also throughout the whole time we had really close contact with our transporter, so we can shift fast between our made plans before the Brexit started. Since 1 January 2021 we use a system that does not allow to book our transport until all required documents are complete and ready to show to customs etc. This gives us a proper overview and a watertight structure, to send all our goods with success to the UK!
At this moment we have executed many transports to the UK and all with success. We are happy to say that our preparations were a success and will cover the future deliveries with certainty!

If we talk sustainability, we can all agree on the fact that we have to face it whether we like it or not. But with this as one of the many criteria a product has to meet, it is not possible to just focus on sustainability and forget about the rest. It would be perfect to replace all products to a sustainable option, but since some sustainable solutions are in early stages, the costs are extensive. In today’s world the real question is, how do I spread my priorities within the current budget?
The question keeping me occupied lately is FAIR TRADE!! Shouldn’t trade always be fair? I personally have a saying which our business always uses, knowing: IF EVERYBODY EARNS SOMETHING NOBODY WILL COMPLAIN! But what is the general perception of what FAIRTRADE means?
