Good news… if you are based in the UK Brexit will have no effect at all.
We have had a few calls from customers outside of the UK and in particular Ireland. Please do not worry, it’s business as usual, at least until the end of this year.
This is an explanation from the courier we use for international deliveries:
In December 2019, the UK Government agreed and voted for a new Brexit deal. On 29 January 2020, the European Parliament ratified the Brexit withdrawal agreement that had been agreed earlier in January by the UK Parliament.
On 31 January 2020 the UK left the EU, and the transition period as stated in the Withdrawal Agreement begins.
The transition period will last until 31 December 2020, allowing the UK and the EU to negotiate a trade deal that would be applicable as of 1 January 2021.
During this period nothing changes for trade of goods and services between the UK and the EU. Goods can continue circulating freely between the UK and the EU without customs declarations or controls.
DPDgroup will ensure that we are ‘Brexit ready’ whatever the scenario and whatever the final date of exit, so that you can continue to ship parcels to your customers throughout the EU.
