The post-Brexit landscape brought unforeseen challenges to the automotive industry, impacting even established players like the Large Automotive Parts Manufacturer. One of the significant hurdles faced by the company was the unexpected delays encountered in destination countries. Many EU nations were unprepared for the surge in goods, leading to an additional three weeks of lead time from the UK.
