Preparing for Brexit with UPS

In the years following the UK referendum, we at UPS have been investing heavily in our workforce, infrastructure and operational systems to prepare our customers for the UK’s departure. While much remains uncertain about the future trade relationship, now is the time to assess your readiness and identify areas of opportunity. This page will guide you through Brexit and help you on your journey towards a new trading landscape.

On April 11th the United Kingdom reached an agreement with the European Union to extend the date on which they will leave the EU. During this extension period, shipments between the EU and the UK will not be subject to customs clearance, meaning it will be business as usual for all of us.
