Wither the Supply Chain
Time & Location
About the Event
Supply chain problems continue to hamper the retail trade. Global problems from manufacturing to transportation of goods mean a wide range of product lines are suffering shortages.
The list of reasons given for the shortage of products missing from stores is extensive. Brexit, the pandemic, shipping problems, staff shortages in the logistics industry and hikes in energy prices. All at a time when we are gearing up to an important Christmas period for a retail sector that needs certainty now, more than ever.
For this meeting of ATCM Northern Ireland, we ask how big the problem is and what impact it is having on the high street for Christmas 2021. We will also introduce the NI Executive’s consultation on the High Streets Task Force. This meeting is open to members from the Republic of Ireland and will focus on issues both sides of the border.
