SOFT BREXIT OR HARD CHEESE?
Argi-food exporters face uncertainty as Brexit moves closer
With Brexit just one year away, the future relationship between the UK and the Customs Union remains largely unresolved. Will customs harmony be maintained or will Irish exporters to the UK and Europe face tariffs and a host of customs formalities? Will there be delays in transiting the UK to reach the wider European markets?
A significant portion of Irish Exports to Europe are shipped on trucks that transit via the UK on the traditional land-bridge route. Post Brexit, it remains unclear how UK Customs authorities will manage this traffic. There is an alternative.
If you are a small or large exporter to Europe, Rhenus Logistics can arrange movement from all main ports in Ireland direct to European ports bypassing the UK. Regular departures from Dublin, Rosslare, Waterford and Cork connect with European Ports in France, Belgium and the Netherlands. We may have to plan for slightly longer transit times but maintaining supply chain certainty remains critically important. Begin your contingency planning now!
For further information please contact your local Rhenus Logistics office.
