If you can cope with any more Brexit talk, there is an interesting – and mercifully short – article in CILT’s magazine. Happily, it outlines some of the potential benefits, or at least mitigating factors, which could minimise border disruption, such as less road freight for non-EU imports entering the UK through main European ports and more direct calls to London Gateway and Fexlistowe; and a proposal that companies self-assess their import duties – which large companies like the sound of. There are, of course, some negatives, with ro-ro in Benelux, Scandinavia and France expected to feel the pinch. And there remain concerns over the Irish border, as well as the massive amount of administrative work all this will take.
