The impact of Brexit on automotive supply chain in the UK
Brexit will impact the UK and global automotive industry and cause disruption across the extended supply chain. Any change in tariffs and regulations will immediately impact the automotive supply chain and make sourcing of assembly parts and distribution of finished vehicles more costly, forcing organisations to rethink their medium to long-term strategies.
A Hard Brexit is likely to increase the cost of an average car by £2,000 and further increase supply chain complexity. We see the biggest impact of Brexit on carmakers and component parts and engine suppliers. The outcome of Brexit negotiations will dictate how automotive businesses are affected by trade, people movement and regulation.
