Logistics Manager--Supply chain costs could be driven up by new regulations governing the use of agency staff which come into force on 1st October, a recruitment consultancy has warned. 

Adrian Hobbs, managing director of Flex Plus, said: “October’s implementation of the Agency Worker Regulations (AWR) will potentially see the costs of agency labour in the supply chain rise at a time when UK business needs less employment legislation and more flexibility to cope with uncertain demand patterns and a tedious continuation of business uncertainty.”
