Autumn, here we come…. It seems to me that spring and summer pass by more quickly than autumn and winter. Perhaps it has to do with the workload ? It also seems that seasons are somewhat equaling regarding parts for our old timers, though spring and summertime remain busier than the quieter autumn and winter periods.
But don’t be sad…. A drive during autumn with those amazing colors of falling leaves can be surely as nice than a drive in summer through the fields. Simply go outside, far away from daily stress and politics. Perhaps workload gives you the opportunity to do so, enjoy it…..
Politics… within some week we’ll know who will become the next president of the United States. Nevertheless an important item. World politics and above all the stability contribute to the economy. Especially our niche market strongly depends on economic prospects. But if we screen both candidates, I’m not sure which one will score on this issue…. After Obama the country got back some human appeal, but when those 2 bulldogs are coming, then we haven’t seen the end of it. The decision will be made on 6 November. Let’s hope the best may win…
Brexit…. A referendum where the inhabitants of the United Kingdom have voted with a narrow majority to leave the European Community. Or…. let’s say how the country was just teared in 2 pieces. Top politicians jeopardized their career and those with a big mouth, took to their heels once they learned the result of the referendum. I wonder what has prospered their career if things really went wrong ?... Politicians ? Pooh!
Brexit will definitely have its consequences. Even on our niche market. “ Just over the channel” some colleagues of mine are occupied with old Volkswagens, but it’s a bit early to predict how this story will end. Let’s just wait how things will go by. Norway and Switzerland are no members of the European Community, by they make part of the Schengen Area (for what it stands for at the moment) and above all of the Unitarian market. They pay a contribution, but they have no voting right. It is a step forward, the UK never agreed with the motions of the European Community…
Meanwhile we keep working at BBT. The unpacking department has been submitted to a complete reorganization and we are planning a new layout for the packing department. Furthermore three new VCA devices have been put in use on the order pickers ( it’s a kind of scanner with a large screen). And they are still more ideas in the box… we do not stand still and consider autumn and winter as a perfect period for updates and adjustments of our infrastructure. The implementation of our new website is the next “big” step to go. We keep investing and innovating to accomplish better services for the benefit of our customers!
