Information about transport to the UK in case of a ‘No-Deal’ BREXIT
The UK is due to leave the European Union (EU) at 23:00 GMT on 31 October 2019.
Our relationship with our customers is very important. We would like to give you some practical information about transport to and from the United Kingdom after BREXIT.
This is however an evolving situation and we will endeavour to maintain updates accordingly.
Should the UK leave the EU without a Withdrawal Agreement, which would put in place a transition period, it will be treated as a non-EU country for customs purposes as of the date of its withdrawal. In case there will be a ‘no-deal’ Brexit on the 31 October this means in particular that:
- Customs formalities will apply
- Customs duties will apply

What does Brexit mean for my customs matters?
At present, the United Kingdom (UK) still belongs to the EU. But this is going to change, the UK will leave the EU.
In Brussels, the EU and the UK are currently negotiating on a possible transition period and a trade agreement. Once we have more information on this, we will make it available on our website. If there is a ‘hard Brexit’ there won’t be any transition period – you will feel the effects immediately. Therefore, you should prepare yourself as well as possible.
