We are in uncertain times across the UK as business and consumers try and work out exactly what will happen with Brexit and struggle to cut through the noise of politicians and experts telling us conflicting information.
One things is certain and that is that if you deal with imports in your business then you are going to need a reliable freight company on your side as you navigate through Brexit and out of the other side.
After Brexit importing into the UK will, as it stands, be the same process from any country and the current arrangements for importing from an EU country will no longer apply and you will always need an EORI number so if you have not got one already you will need to apply using H M Revenue & Customs on line procedure.

When the US took the decision to apply 25% duty surcharges, Chinese companies as well as their Far East competitors began making alternative plans.
Expect to see huge ramping up of production in Vietnam (especially), Malaysia, Indonesia as well as other Far East counties such as Cambodia and Thailand. Even if the US were to reverse Chinese duty surcharges tomorrow most manufacturers say they will disburse their production over a number of countries in future so that they don’t have all their eggs in one basket.
