Following last week’s events and the new suggested Brexit date of 31st October, we would urge our customers to use the extended deadline to complete preparations in order that shipments flow as efficiently as possible.
If there’s a no deal conclusion, there will be immediate changes to the way we trade with our EU partners and goods that move between the UK and the EU will require customs clearance.
We want to explain some of things that Europa has and is doing in order to be ready for that change and also to give customers some help, advice and useful links in order that customers can also ensure they’re ready.
The extended deadline means we collectively have more time to be able to finalise the arrangements and we remain on hand and available to help and support your business through the preparation period.
