How does the Dutch port solution for Brexit work ?

In order to make use of the chainwide solution for Brexit in the Dutch ports, companies have to complete 5 steps together with their chain partners. The ferry and shortsea terminals have decided that without pre-notified customs documents via Portbase, the driver will not be granted access, meaning the cargo cannot be transported. Only in this way will the ’digital border’ function and ensure a speedier procedure compared to labour-intensive manual inspections.
