BIFA calls on members to talk Customs after Brexit

BIFA is calling on its members to take part in a survey which is designed to “gain a better understanding of the scale of potential Customs procedure training that will be required post-Brexit within the freight forwarding sector.”

“Our members and the companies they serve are worried about administrative costs for new procedures such as filing Customs declarations, unexpected delays from new checks and such things as damage to ‘just-in-time processes’ involving rapid imports of components,” said Robert Keen, BIFA’s director general. “Despite the on-going uncertainties over the path that Brexit will eventually take, survey such as this are one thing we can do to help prepare for the future.”
