On the night of 29 to 30 March 2019, the UK will leave the European Union. As such a development will lead to major changes, the Port of Rotterdam has made preparations to enable freight transport via the Port to run as smoothly as possible. For this transport to run smoothly, the Port said that cooperation is required from all parties in the logistics chain.
The British Ports Association released a video highlighting the importance of ports to the UK’s economy. The film uses new economic impact study data produced for Maritime UK, showing the value of the UK ports industry.
The UK Chamber of Shipping notes that, unless the EU and UK negotiatiors develop a new customs arrangement post-Brexit, EU member states and UK will suffer. In the video, the Chamber warns that the return of border controls would lead to increased bureaucracy, “guaranteed” lorry gridlock and threats to the prosperity of both EU member states and UK.
As part the UK Chamber’s work to analyse the impact of the Brexit vote and explore what may happen in the process to leave the EU, the UK Chamber of Shipping held a Brexit Seminar on 18 July 2016.
