UK Export: The move of UK SMEs to US and Australasian markets

The impact of COVID-19 has without doubt presented significant challenges to the logistics industry and its global customers:

From a huge surge in airfreight rates to a need for alternative ocean freight, rapid rail solutions and increased storage. In addition, the past 2 weeks have seen an enormous demand for the safe procurement and transportation of PPE by government agencies, NHS trusts and charitable bodies involved in supporting the crisis, all of which has been impacting inbound supply chains into the UK.

However, amidst these unprecedented pressures, changes in buying behaviour, together with the current rate of exchange, have resulted in many SMEs experiencing a growth in export volumes, leading to some of the strongest shipment counts on record at Woodland Group. 

As the wheels of the UK economy keep turning throughout this global crisis and consumer behaviour in the USA and Australasia continues to remain strong, Woodland are delivering record levels of goods between the UK and both continents.
