The UK's exit from the EU will - at least in the long run - entail changes for anyone transporting goods between Sweden and the UK. But during a transitional period until December 31, 2020, companies and EU citizens will have the same rights as they have today. In the meantime, the EU and the UK will negotiate a free trade agreement.
Thus, as it seems today, nothing will be different between January 31 and December 31, 2020 in terms of regulations and handling of goods transported between Sweden and the UK.
The Gothenburg Port Authority is in ongoing dialogue with terminal operators and the Customs Administration. We continuously monitor developments and plan preparations and actions based on the latest information available.
The Gothenburg port Authority is also working together with other relevant stakeholders in the port to make the transition period as smooth as possible at the Port of Gothenburg.
