BREXIT

The United Kingdom (UK) would leave the European Union (EU) on 29 March 2019. Meanwhile, it has been decided to postpone the exit date until 31 October 2019.

Given the current uncertainties surrounding Brexit and the impossibility to predict which scenario will apply, the information on this website is susceptible to evolve in light of political events.


What if Brexit happens with a withdrawal agreement? 

Should the British parliament approve the finalised withdrawal agreement the new date will be 31 October 2019. The British Parliament can also approve a Brexit agreement earlier. 
 

What if Brexit happens without a withdrawal agreement? 

It still remains a possibility that the withdrawal agreement will not be ratified by the British parliament. Without this approval, there will be no transition period. This is what we refer to as a "hard Brexit". If the UK does not organize elections to the European Parliament and has not ratified the withdrawal agreement, the Brexit date is 31 May 2019. 
Companies that organize transport from or to the UK must prepare themselves so that, in case of a possible Brexit, there are as few disruptions as possible.
