42 Days to the end of Brexit: Things you need to do #5 – Amazon Selling

Things aren’t looking good for UK ports in the New Year when the Brexit Transition Agreement comes to an end. The BBC reports that Felixstowe Port is already rammed with containers waiting to be hauled away and the port is so congested that some ships have diverted to European ports and offloaded there leaving their cargo to be transferred back to the UK – being faced with 10 day wait to berth and unload, after you arrive on your appointed day, just doesn’t work for container ships with a schedule to keep.

Partly this is due to enormous quantities of PPE arriving (11,000 containers of PPE currently in the port!) and partly down to many retailers who have ordered a ton of stock to avoid potential delays after the 1st of January. But if the ports are rammed beyond capacity now it’s not likely to be any better post Brexit in just 42 days time.

As an online retailer you can’t control the ports but there are steps you should be taking and these are actions you will need to do regardless of whether there is a long term trade deal with the EU or not and with only 42 days left, time is running out to prepare.

In January we will be holding a webinar Peak, Brexit and COVID – What on earth happened?, in which we’ll share first hand experiences and unique insights on what really happened across carriers, sellers and buyers from the start of Black Friday through to New Year sales. Register today to get a reminder nearer the time when we’ll be looking at first-hand experiences and unique insights on what really happen
