Did you know: Brexit Edition

Did you know – There was nearly a “Brexit” in 1975?

The United Kingdom continued their relationship with European neighbors in the 1975 referendum, though the Brexit referendum changed this in 2016.

What effect does the Brexit have on international shipping?

  • Taxes, duties and regulations on goods transported between the UK and EU may be changed.
  • Maritime cabotage rights within the EU may not be available to UK companies.
  • Increased border control could impact transit times.

The UK is scheduled to leave the EU on March 29th, 2019.
