If you haven’t already it is advisable to contact your suppliers and customers to determine to what extent you will need to re-establish your inwards and outwards supply chains. If there are likely to be shortfalls of raw materials to produce products, it is worth planning expected production dates or service delivery to manage customer expectations.
If warehousing goods yourself, ensure safety limits are not exceeded, sprinkler rules are complied with and fire exit routes are kept clear.
