Brexit ready

Over the last 18 months, since Theresa May struggled fruitlessly to get her Brexit deal through parliament, we have published over 60 news, opinion and guidance articles and shared close to 200 social posts, on this critical subject and now we’re putting the finishing touches to our next Brexit support tool.

From the publication of the first draft UK Brexit tariff in February 2019, to the release of the UK Global Tariff (UKGT) that will apply from the 1st January 2021, we have reported on and predicted every major supply chain development of our departure from the European Union at the end of the year.

And it is clear that our efforts are well received, by news-hungry customers and wider shipper audiences, that has seen our social channels grow by 40%, our web traffic by 300% and industry news channels increasingly quoting us and our experts.

With the impending launch of our dedicated Brexit mini-site we anticipate these audience figures will grow further as we concentrate our Brexit news, guidance and solutions in a single place.

Metro’s ‘Brexit Ready’ site will provide importers and exporters with a unique resource. A portal that lay’s plain the changes they need to prepare for, details of the new export and import border processes and direct access to a host of critical resources and solutions.

Preparing you and your supply chain for Brexit is our simple objective. 

For shippers that want to be informed, we are ready to educate on everything from Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) to Transit accompanying Documents (TAD) and everything in between.

For those that want the easy life and reassurance that their European supply chains will operate as usual post-Brexit we detail a range of Metro solutions, designed to ensure they will be Brexit ready.

With 500,000 additional daily customs entries due to be submitted after Brexit, digitalisation and automation will be critical and the only practical way to ensure that the customs system and supporting infrastructure is not overwhelmed, which is why we have developed digital and automated solutions to eradicate Brexit risk, for the biggest importers.
