Now that the UK has officially left the EU, the pressure is on to establish a workable trade and customs model for the UK and EU by the end of this year. This week, the Prime Minister has advised that British firms will face extra paperwork and checks on goods at cross-channel borders in favour of greater say on UK regulatory independence. The ideal of frictionless trade is no longer the goal as Government advises that now is the time for companies to prepare for business outside of the customs union.
How will the UK-EU negotiations play out? What will a hard border mean for business? What do companies need to do to prepare for this? And how can they plan and use technology to reduce supply chain risk, cost and delay?
Join us for a discussion on this and more with our experts including Stephen F Tracey, CEO, CustomsMatters; Senior Vice President Sales EMEA, Microlistics, Gavin Clark; Partnership Manager Ireland, SmartFreight, Gavin Warwick and Associate Director and Global Trade Advisory, Deloitte, Aleks Racic.
Don’t miss what promises to be a compelling conversation with industry peers on the strategies for dealing with the new normal in UK-EU cross-border trade.
