Brexit - transitional period
Blue Water prepares for various situations and follow developments closely in order to be able to launch the appropriate initiatives
Many customers have asked us what will actually happen, and we are working at full stretch to give the correct information
Despite the fact that 29 March - the date when Great Britain officially leaves the EU – is drawing near, the negotiations of the terms for Great Britain’s withdrawal have not yet been concluded. This means there are still many unresolved issues as to what consequences Brexit will have in practice.
“Until an agreement is made between EU and Great Britain – including customs regulations – we cannot tell what consequences it will have for the transport industry - and our customers. We prepare ourselves, as well as we can, for the various situations and follow developments closely in order to be able to launch the appropriate initiatives as soon as possible”, states Carsten Nitz, Director of Blue Water’s Road Division.
Blue Water’s preparations include approvals regarding customs clearance and customs terminal for the company’s Manchester office. Furthermore, Blue Water’s business partners in Great Britain are also preparing themselves for changes after 29 March.
In Denmark, we are in regular contact with DI (Danish Industry), the Danish Customs Agency, the Danish Veterinary and Food Administration and other authorities and trade organisations as well as the Danish ports involved to find the best solutions for our customers.
“Many customers have asked us what will actually happen, and we are working at full stretch to give the correct information. It is important for us to help our customers, and right now Brexit is causing challenges due to the uncertainty as to the extent to which it will affect the present flow of goods”.
