Posted by Liam Harrison on 06-Jul-2020 11:45:00

With the Covid 19 crisis and subsequent lockdown occupying all the headlines and, to be honest, most people’s headspace, it’s easy to forget that we’re nearly two months into the Brexit transition period.

Despite the disruption and uncertainty caused by the virus, including many high profile names becoming ill with the disease, the UK government have insisted a deal can be done in time for 31st December.

Posted by Liam Harrison on 01-Aug-2019 12:33:00

Businesses involved in Scandinavian transport on both sides of the North Sea are understandably concerned about the impact of Brexit. Whenever it happens, Brexit will represent the biggest change in economic relations between the UK and the Scandinavian countries for more than 40 years. Furthermore, statements from the UK’s prime minister Boris Johnson that the UK will leave “do or die” on 31st October 2019, and the EU’s intransigence on revising the three times rejected Withdrawal Agreement, make a so-called ‘no deal’ scenario more likely.
