Brexit Transition – Are you prepared?
The Brexit transition period ends on December 31st 2020. From 1st January 2021 new rules apply and businesses will face disruption to trade, deal or no deal.
Since the 2016 Brexit vote, the waste industry have stressed the impact it could have on the RDF export industry. One clear additional burden on the industry is the requirement for additional Customs documents, leading to an increase in time-consuming administrative workload, further processes to manage and, if not managed properly, confusion.
Be warned, the extra paperwork does not constitute ‘just one more form to fill in’. If the time-critical documentation is missing or completed incorrectly, this will lead to delayed trucks and/or loads being turned away at the port.
Andusia is fully prepared for the move, every member of the operations team has undertaken the appropriate customs declaration training, certified by the British International Freight Association. As such, Andusia will be able to manage the extensive new customs clearance procedures on behalf of its suppliers.
Over the past few months, we have been in discussions with our hauliers and end market plants, coordinating our procedures. We have also put plans in place to free-up time and resource in order to ensure the additional workload is handled efficiently, especially through the first few weeks of the change.
Deal or no deal, it is Andusia’s view that RDF exports will continue to form a significant part of the UK’s waste management structure for the foreseeable future.
