Issues affecting supply chains and UK business operations
techUK is working with the Government to map and understand the impacts of supply chain issues on our members as well as the wider tech sector.
The UK is currently experiencing a number of supply chain issues that are having an impact on businesses. These business impacts are principally arising from increased energy costs, labour shortages and logistics issues.
techUK is working with the Government to map and understand the impacts of these supply chain issues on our members as well as the wider tech sector. To help us do this we would be grateful if members and other UK tech companies could flag any pressing issues as well as medium to long term concerns they foresee by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Disruptions to supply may result from the shortage of HGV drivers, interuptions to supplies of raw materials and repair parts, energy cost and supply issues, labour and staff shortages as well as other disruptions.
Any information provided will be held anonymously and used to help us update Government on how the sector is coping with any supply chain disruptions and make requests for support if these are needed.
Specifically, we would be interested to understand:
- Any immediate impacts that are currently being experienced by your business
- Are there any expected impacts that you foresee having a significant effect on your business in the next 3-6 months?
- Do you have any long term concerns about the viability of your business if supply chain issues are not resolved?
Some companies may face an emergency situation that could have wider impacts on the UK economy and public services. If this is the case, we ask that you specify this in your email so that we can prioritise your response.
