As of 1 January: no document, no transport!

Brexit deal means customs formalities at the border

Get Ready for Brexit newsletter of 29 December 2020 – The Brexit deal that was concluded just before Christmas is clear: as of the 1st of January 2021, every transport to and from the United Kingdom starts with customs formalities. No customs document means no transport in the new year. Only cargo for which a customs document has been digitally pre-notified beforehand via Portbase is permitted to enter and leave the ferry or shortsea terminal. In this way, pre-notified cargo always quickly travels via the Dutch ports in the new year as well.
