We asked Complete IntelligenceCEO Tony Nash what this pandemic has done to forecasting and supply chains.


We’ve seen a big shift in how managers are looking at their supply chains. As a result of Covid-19, companies are eager to understand their cost and revenue risks, things like concentration risk and the timing of their cost, that sort of thing. We’re helping our customers with timely and accurate information to make smarter cost and better revenue planning decisions.“

“The nation tariff rate for non-EU member is something like 2.3%–2% on the price of anything is not going make a major difference. The trickier issue is the non-tariff barriers that Europe has. The UK has to navigate around those non-tariff barriers,” said Nash.


“In terms of country partners, the US is actually the largest trade partner of the UK. It’s around $67-68 billion a year. The second largest export partner in Germany at about $45 billion dollars. The EU as an aggregate partner is, of course, larger than the US. But the EU as a trade partner is stagnant. It’s not growing from the UK. It hasn’t grown noticeably since 2015/16. Meanwhile, the US is growing at a billion dollars per year.”


Where do you see the Pound this year?


“We’re seeing the Pound continuing to strengthen until about April. And once April hits, we see some of its strength tail off just a bit,” said Nash.
