LONDON (Reuters) - The United States is hoping that Brexit can be worked out in the least disruptive way and businesses are worried about supply chains and logistics, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said on Tuesday.

“They’re very, very uncertain about the outcome and particularly worried about supply chain implications and the sheer logistics of moving goods,” Ross told Sky News.

“We hope that things can be worked out in the least disruptive way between the UK and the EU,” he said.

Ford (F.N) is among the U.S. companies to operate facilities in Britain and the carmaker has warned about the dangers of a no-deal departure from the European Union.
