Brexit Transition Update

January 05, 2021

After months of negotiations, the UK and European Union have finally agreed to a deal that will define their future relationship, which came into effect at 23:00GMT on 31 December 2020. The deal contains new rules for how the UK and EU will live, work, and trade together.

Although there may not be new taxes to pay at the border, there will be new paperwork and procedures that have the potential to cause delays. Shipments exported from the UK to Europe will need to comply with FIDI customs regulations, the same will apply when importing into the UK from Europe.

Consequently, export clearance from the UK will need to be completed at the exporter’s premises until this process is made clear. All truck shipments departing the UK will need to be returned to the warehouse for export clearance.

Your global Arpin service team is working closely with our supplier partners and clients to monitor the new process and we will be contacting all assignees for all the relevant paperwork. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact an Arpin representative for additional advice and guidance.
