Should Great Britain and the EU fail to forge an agreement in regards to Britain’s exit from the EU, the passage of goods and persons will be subject to border control procedures as of January 01, 2021.
The port of Dover alone is being frequented by more than 10’000 trucks per day, of which just about 4% have to be cleared through customs at present.
OOnce the entire traffic of goods must be customs cleared, there is a risk of trucks having to queue up for several days, on either side of the Channel.
This may well result in additional cost, such as extended waiting periods and higher trucking charges due to longer routes.
As such costs are not included in present tariffs and agreements, we will be forced to pass them on as they may occur, to the party that covers the transport costs.
