TT Club provides information on how to export and trade goods between the UK and the EU amid Brexit, as many are the changes that followed after Britain’s exit.

The UK’s Environment Secretary, George Eustice, reported that British firms exporting their fish out of the country will experience some friction after the post-Brexit transmission period.
