James Thomas’s Retail 2021 predictions


Intersoft’s James Thomas adds his retail predictions for 2021

International relations

Brexit trade deal or not, there are several administrative, logistical, and legal changes afoot for retailers with dealings overseas. And that is likely to cause disruption in 2021.

James Thomas, managing director of Intersoft, another delivery management software provider, says: “Covid-19 may have dominated the headlines this year, but Brexit will be big news for the UK in 2021.

“We may have left the European Union (EU) already, but new rules and regulations for businesses and consumers won’t come into effect until January 2021.”

Thomas adds: “With the potential for new trade agreements, we may see an increase in shipments made to the rest of the world [non-EU markets]. Retailers need to be prepared for the opportunities this brings and partnering with multiple carriers is one way of doing this.”
