Driven by people.
There is a great deal of uncertainty about the real timing and effects of Brexit.
What does seem clear however is that customs clearance will make a return for imports from and exports to the UK, either from 29th March 2019 in the event of a ‘hard’ Brexit or 31st December 2020 if a transition period is agreed.
The ripple effects of Brexit are likely to include increased transit times and costs, not only for cargo to/from the UK but also for goods travelling by road to/from Europe via the UK Landbridge (for information needed for exports to Europe via the UK Landbridge, should the UK leave the EU, click here). This in turn could lead to capacity issues on direct routes to/from Europe as exporters and importers seek alternatives.
We’ve been performing customs clearances for decades and hold AEO certification from Customs so we are well placed to assist with any queries you may have.
