As a critical supplier to key infrastructure across Europe, we are taking all reasonable steps to mitigate risk

Updated on the 10th Novemeber 2020

ASL has been preparing for the UK leaving the EU single market and customs union. The transition period ends on 31 December 2020.   We are monitoring the situation closely so that we can continue to provide our customers with a reliable supply of our products after 31 December 2020. 

The key actions we have taken are:

  • Ensuring employees are trained and keep up to date with EU import and export requirements from 1 January 2020.
  • Working with our freight forwarders and couriers to minimise any impact on our deliveries.
  • Stocking high levels of ASL products to ensure that there are no delays in customer supply.
  • Keeping in regular contact with our third party suppliers (including racks, batteries and network switches) to ensure we have a robust source of supply and to manage products with longer lead times.
  • Encouraging customers to send us up to date forecasts so that we can secure the right amount of stock.
  • Monitoring travel issues for our employees.
  • Discuss holding stock.

We recognise that many of our customers may have concerns, and we would like to reassure you that we are taking all reasonable steps to mitigate risk where this is within our control.  We have many years of experience working with customers and suppliers outside of the EU, and therefore we already have considerable expertise in dealing with import and export requirements.  We will  continue to review our position as more information is provided by the UK Government.

Should you have any questions or require additional information on any specific aspect of our operations or service, please do not hesitate to contact or on +44 1273 405411

We look forward to continuing to work together, and thank you for your ongoing support.
