Shipping News Feature

UK – The United Kingdom Warehousing Association (UKWA) has been closely involved in discussions with government on the lead up to Brexit, and now the logistics support organisation is to host a Free Interactive Workshop and Networking Lunch open to members and non-members alike.

If you import or export goods, whether you’re a logistics user or a logistics service provider, you need to know about important changes to rules, regulations and procedures as the UK exits the European Union. The forthcoming session, to be held at Crowne Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon on Friday October 25, will cover all the major issues.

Barbara Scott of Customs Associates Ltd is just one of a team of UKWA’s retained experts lined up to help you negotiate the challenges ahead. A specialist consultant, Barbara is Chairman of the Customs Practitioners Group and sits on various HMRC consultative committees, including the Joint Customs Consultative Committee on EU Exit.

In a brief presentation, she will explain about customs tariffs and procedures for importing and exporting if we leave the EU without a deal, including the new easements being put in place to keep traffic flowing at the ports. The session will provide an opportunity to put your questions directly to front-line experts, and:

  • Gain essential information on how to prepare for Brexit
  • Take part in open forum discussions
  • Sign up for one-to-one ‘speed dating’ slots
  • Put your questions directly to our panel
Other speakers will include Mike Burns of Weightmans discussing commercial contracts under Brexit, and Lesley Batchelor OBE from the Institute of Export and International Trade on Understanding Incoterms, Chris Sturman, Craymere Consulting on plant, animal and forest products (pallets), Sue Watson, HR Solutions advising on the HR & EU Settlement Scheme and the session will be hosted by CEO of the UKWA, Peter Ward.

Barbara Scott and the panel will be available to answer questions, both in open forum and on a one-to-one basis during the networking breaks and over lunch. Register HERE now for a free place and with the experts, to make sure you’re fully prepared and ready for Brexit!
