CILT teams up with Skillnet to help prepare for Brexit


As “Brexit Day” looms large, transport  operators can never be well enough prepared, The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport (CILT) has teamed up with CILT Skillnet to prepare a series of focused webinars to help prepare their members for the big B day.

The COVID-19 crisis has brought about unique and extreme challenges for many sectors in Ireland. Few businesses have escaped a downturn.

COVID-19 has rightly been the focus of attention over the past few months. However, further challenging times may be on the horizon for those who trade with or through the UK.

The next phase of Brexit is approaching with the end of the Transition Period on 31st December this year. CILT CEO, Mick Curran, discussed the importance of strong and robust supply chains which have proven to be vital through the lockdown due to COVID-19. In an interview with the Business Post Mick stated: Like any chain, it’s only as strong as its weakest link. COVID-19 demonstrated the robustness of our supply chains in Ireland. Every evening the shelves of our supermarkets were restocked. Not only were the shops restocked, the vital raw materials for all our industries were also continually delivered, but this also allowed productions to continue.”

CILT Ireland is teaming up with CILT Skillnet to co-host a new webinar series entitled Brexit & Your Business.

The aim of this series of webinars is to help inform businesses about the next phase of Brexit, how it may impact on business and how to prepare for it. Over the coming months, these webinars will discuss topics such as Customs arrangements, Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), Transit and more. These webinars are free and open to all Irish businesses.
