An update on Brexit

As Brexit remains in the headlines, I would like to take this opportunity to update you on our plans and preparations and let you know about what we have implemented changes to remove and reduce potential difficulties in transiting goods to the EU.

Our strategy will remain the same. Our investment in great people will not slow down, stock will increase, in line with our rapid European growth. Our international success is based on innovation, quality ingredients, technical support, stock availability and close client relationships; we have no reason to change any of this. 

As the future trading relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom is still to be confirmed, we continue our plan to ensure seamless continuity of supply between CCL and its European customers. Here are some details of what we have achieved so far:

CCL has created a legal entity in mainland Europe 

CCL is committed to servicing all European customers and to investing in the future. This will enable us, if required, to invoice within the European Union. 

CCL offers consignment stock / warehousing

On request, we can discuss strategic stock placed in your warehouse or our third-party warehouses, ensuring service levels are maintained with no cost to yourselves. Direct deliveries from our approved factories are already following this route, avoiding the necessity for UK customs clearance. 

Our trade terms will remain unchanged - DDP (Delivered Duty Paid) 

CCL will preserve its current trading relationship.

CCL has over 20 years of experience in global import-export management

We operate between 6 different continents and our expert team is fully prepared to manage any administrative changes, fully supported by the world’s best logistics partners. 

If you have any concerns or questions, or you would like to meet to discuss our future trading relationship; Ian York (Sales Director), Elouan Morel (Head of EMEA Sales) and myself, will be available over the summer period to meet.
