Brexit update: the importance of a customs power of attorney

Although COVID-19 is affecting the Brexit negotiations, as of today negotiations between the EU and the UK are again being conducted via video conference. Three rounds of negotiations, each lasting one week in April, May, and June are planned to advance the details of a trade agreement. Currently, the end of the transition phase for Brexit is December 31, 2020, and DACHSER continues to prepare for this date.

A number of important points need to be taken into account when preparing for the Brexit, for example, a customs power of attorney from the relevant recipients is essential for handling shipments to and from the UK. Therefore, we ask our customers to continue to advise their consignees to provide us with the necessary customs power of attorney.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with your DACHSER representative.
