It's running-out! summer essentials shortage in the UK

It’s running out, summer essentials shortage, something that has been on the cards for months is happening. British businesses are struggling to secure essential supplies like garden furniture, picnic baskets and outdoor toys, as consumers prepare for a holiday in the UK.

About 60% of British suppliers have experienced import delays in the past month, but they are also facing huge transport costs with containers costing almost 20 times what they used to.

Summer essentials shortage has been on the cards since Brexit

One aspect of the delay has been the Suez canal blockage but additionally, the lack of containers returning to China is also a major cause of the shortage of imports. Brexit has slowed down the imports in the UK and ever since Jan a bottle-neck for the supply has evolved at British borders.

Hundreds of business have struggled to release goods through customs as they have incurred thousands of extra charges in transit.
