Due to the still unresolved situation with the UK's exit from the EU by 12 April at midnight, extra pressure on capacity in & out of the UK must be expected. From Blue Water's part, we will be working at full stretch to transport your goods at the agreed time.

As we do not yet know the consequences of the UK’s exit from the EU, we cannot guarantee departure and transit times after 12 April (provided that the UK leaves the EU).

Last departures before any Brexit will therefore be:

Denmark: Last departure to/from Ireland will be Friday 5 April, and last departure to/from the UK will be Tuesday, 9 April

Sweden: Last departure to/from the UK will be Tuesday 9 April

Finland: Last departure to/from the UK will be Friday 5 April

Norway: Last departure to/from the UK will be Friday 5 April

For further information, your local contact will always be at your disposal.

Customs Clearance

There are still many unresolved issues as to the UK’s exit from the EU, and there is a high risk that a hard Brexit will happen between 12 and 13 April.

Should this happen, you will on and after 13 April need to make customs clearance in the UK.

HMRC, the UK customs authorities, has updated their guidelines for the customs clearance procedures in the UK.

You can see more information from HMRC at www.gov.uk/government/news/hmrc-outlines-extension-of-transitional-simplified-procedures  

We recommend you to have a dialogue with your customers about this, and that you urge your customers to apply for TSP and thus ensure that you as an exporting company have an EORI no.

Should you have any further questions, our customs team will be at your disposal on telephone +45 7913 4214 or via skat@bws.net.
