A Brexit deal has now been agreed by the UK Government and European Union, with legal confirmation of a flex-tension until 31 January, as well as a confirmation of a General Election on 12 December.

So where does this leave us in terms of plans for cross-border trade? And what are the different scenarios still in play in the context of the changing political landscape?

With our EU and International Policy advisor, William Bain, we’ll review the customs and regulatory arrangements included in the recent ‘Deal’ and what this would mean for UK/Northern Ireland and UK/EU trade. We’ll also consider the positions of the main political parties and how this could impact the ‘Deal’ following 12 December.

With 55% of international tonnage coming through UK ports, we’ll also be gaining input from our Partners, DP World, on the preparedness of UK ports, how they’re planning for the different Brexit scenarios, what this will look like in practice, and advice they’re giving to customers to help minimise disruption or delay to the flow of goods.
