Potential delays at UK/EU border


With potential customs checks between the UK and the EU, there may be delays at the border.

Your business should consider

  • The potential of customs checks to cause delays at the border will depend on how new policies are implemented in practice: customs checks are typically risk-based rather than universal. As yet there no details on how enforcement might be executed in practice.
  • How resilient is your supply chain to potential border delays?
  • Do any contracts you have include penalties for late delivery? You may want to discuss with your logistics provider whether you would require new arrangements.
  • Do you need to increase your inventory and/or buy additional storage space?
