PREPARING FOR BREXIT

Brexit is top of mind for all businesses trading internationally and we’re aware that the uncertainty remains a challenge.

Since the referendum in June 2016, we have been working closely with UK and EU legislators to ensure the requirements of businesses trading internationally, along with the impact of proposed exit terms, are fully understood.

DHL Express’ expert taskforces in the UK and Europe have been assessing every aspect of Brexit for more than 24 months, considering all implications for international trade. As international specialists we’re already in a strong position, with our existing customs teams, network capabilities and experience of international trade.

Across the business we are making significant and continued investment with the aim of providing as seamless a service as possible post-Brexit, in what will potentially be challenging circumstances.

FAQs
How is DHL Express preparing for Brexit?

Our expert taskforce has assessed our business and prepared our operation for changes post Brexit that will be within our control. We have increased the number of customs agents, operational and customer service staff, plus expanded our bond capacity in anticipation of customs requirements for the EU post Brexit.

How can customers prepare their business?

The most significant change for businesses trading internationally is the likely introduction of customs requirements for the EU post Brexit.

What will change for parcel recipients?

Customs Duties & Taxes are likely to be applied to parcels arriving in the UK from the EU post Brexit, in the same way that these charges apply now when receiving parcels from outside the EU. The recipient will be asked to pay these charges.

Will there be delays?

We will do everything we can to maintain as seamless a service as possible in what may be challenging circumstances. If there are delays at the ports this is likely to impact our Day Definite International road services to/from Europe.

What is the timeline?

The UK is currently scheduled to leave the EU on or before 31 January 2020. Following this, a transition period will begin during which the exact terms of exit will be negotiated.
