With Brexit fast approaching we are all looking ahead to the future of shipments in and out of Europe in the coming months and years. We know that whatever deal is struck between Europe and the UK, it will impact the shipping and freight forwarding industry enormously.
As the UK leaves the European Union, trade tariffs will need to be renegotiated and it will mean that free flow of goods between the two will no longer be available. This will likely mean delays at borders and increased checks on cargo being imported and exported from the UK.
Regardless of whether the Government agrees a hard or soft Brexit, Lysander Shipping are fully prepared for any eventuality. As an approved AEO (Approved Economic Operator) you can expect quicker customs clearance times and fewer hold-ups at borders for security and Port Health checks, when you use our customs broker services.
We are also best placed to assist with shipments between UK and Europe due to us having our own offices in Denmark and Italy, and a network of agents throughout Europe who are ready and willing to get cargo moving quickly and securely while we are making the transition.

We have competitive LCL and FCL rates for MED, Baltic and Black Sea regions, which could result in a faster and cheaper alternative to roadfreight.
