From 1 January 2021, a border and all associated customs processes apply to EU/UK trade, even though a Trade and Co-operation agreement has been signed.
While the UK Government have indicated that these new rules will be introduced gradually over 6 months in a “Three phase strategy”, the European Commission has stated that, from their side there will be no plan or possibility of a grace period.

On 10 December 2020 we heard from our experts on the likely impact on the logistics chain. Questions related to the practical steps necessary to avoid unexpected costs and pitfalls and where to find the most reliable information and checklists were discussed.
