Brexit – Transition Period Update



Brexit update

The UK officially left the European Union on January 31, 2020, entering into a Transition Period scheduled to last until December 31, 2020.

During this time the UK and EU will conduct negotiations over a future trading relationship.

All your shipping processes will remain the same until the end of the Transition Period. However, as the terms of the future trading relationship between the UK and EU remain uncertain, customers should be aware of the potential for change.

We recommend you keep referring back to this page where we will provide details on any future changes you may need to make.
