All the parties in the chain are dependent on each other. To prevent chaos at the border, a broad partnership has been established under the name ‘Get Ready for Brexit’. Only if all the parties in the chain work together and take their own responsibility can they prevent delays together.
This chain-wide solution has been jointly developed at the initiative of Portbase and the interest groups Transport en Logistiek Nederland (transporters), FENEX (forwarders), evofenedex (importers and exporters) and Deltalinqs (port business community). All ferry operators, many shortsea terminals, the Royal Association of Netherlands Shipowners (KNVR), NIWO, Alliance Customs Software, Dutch Customs and the port authorities of Rotterdam and Amsterdam also support the initiative.
