Can I as a truck driver travel to the UK with an ID card after Brexit or do I need a passport?

Since 1 October 2021 you will need a valid passport for entrance to the UK. If you became a UK resident on or before 31 December 2020, you can continue to use your ID card to travel between the Netherlands and the UK until at least the end of 2025.  Read more here.

What is the impact of Brexit in the Dutch ports?

Because the United Kingdom has left the European Union, a border is created and customs formalities have to be performed. This automatically means that parties in the logistics chain are now dependent on each other. One party needs to use the data of another party to perform its next steps. The exporter or importer has to ensure that Customs is provided with a customs declaration. That is the first step. The customs documents must next be pre-notified at the terminal via Portbase. If this doesn’t happen, the cargo – and therefore the transporter – will by definition come to a standstill at the border. Think of it as checking in online at the airport. In order to do this, a ticket has to be booked. You can next use that ticked number to check in in advance; once you arrive at the airport, the check-in has already been arranged digitally, allowing for a smooth passage.
