A two day, interactive workshop for those staff members who are responsible for dealing with Imports and giving instructions for clearing goods through Customs.
The UK has left the EU and the way we used to trade with EU member states has changed, resulting in confusion for both the EU supplier, UK importer and in some cases, the freight forwarder.
Issues that pre Brexit did not have to be taken into account are now vital if your shipment is to arrive with you without delays at the border. An understanding of those issues is paramount to efficient and successful trading going forward.
