There is no doubt that Brexit and Covid-19 pandemic has given significant challenges to supply chains. New custom requirements, a large volume of new paperwork, labour shortages, and multiple national lockdowns are some of the issues that have posed significant global supply chain disruptions, especially to the UK firms. Understanding how UK manufacturers manage supply chain disruptions will help businesses to be alert, respond and recover from major disturbances. As such, this study examines the current state of supply chain resilience practices among UK manufacturers using a survey questionnaire. The investigation is focused on recent Brexit and Covid-19 disruptions and compared them with the normal situation. Subsequently, results show that supply chain planning is more effective in Brexit and Covid-19 than in the normal situation. Supply chain planning is necessary for firms to have greater visibility around their supply chains.
