GBNews published this video item, entitled “Money Talks: Richard Bartlett, UK and Ireland Manager of KlearNow” – below is their description.
In this episode, Liam talks to Richard Bartlett, UK and Ireland Manager of KlearNow, a global company specialising in logistics and customs clearance.
As the global economy struggles to reboot after lockdown, supply chain issues – hindering the movement of goods within and between countries – are a major cause of inflation.
Such snarl-ups lead to higher prices for producers which then get passed on – while slowing down economic growth as well. Richard Bartlett gives an insiders’ account of how the operation of UK supply chains and ports have been impacted by both Brexit and lockdown.

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.
Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.
The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.
A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
During the 2020 Covid-19 epidemic, lockdown has come to mean the practice of attempting to control transmission of the virus by means of restricting people’s movement and activities on a broad scale, usually on a national or state-wide basis.
