In Q1 of 2021 and to the present day, the distribution market has experienced several notable disruptions being: -
- BREXIT and issues arriving with Customs formalities.
- COVID and the shortage of LGV drivers as workers were either shielding, off with COVID or furloughed.
- Domestic trading, where traders switched to UK / UK trading post BREXIT and International trade deals.
- Easing of lockdown, where the distribution market has seen a very significant spike in road transport demand with the reopening of the high street and the hospitality sectors as they not only restock for their forthcoming trading but dispose of redundant stock.
