Brexit, the Supply Chain, and CEVA Logistics


Ensuring compliance and efficiency on both sides of the Channel


Since January 1, 2021, the border between the European Union and the United Kingdom has been reestablished with the immediate consequences of the entry into force of new declarative obligations.

The logistical and financial impact of Brexit is being felt right across supply chains, on both sides of the Channel, affecting the duties businesses pay, pushing costs up for businesses who don’t optimize supply chains in response to new procedures, and creating non-compliance risk for those who are unsure of the new regulations.  

At CEVA, we believe that the risks associated with Brexit can be significantly reduced by adopting best practice early and building customs compliance into your everyday processes.  

In a highly uncertain regulatory environment, we partner daily with leading players of all industries to ensure full compliance, cost efficiency and time to market whilst limiting risks close to 0.  
With more than 400,000 Customs declarations per year between the EU and the GB, CEVA have become a leading player in providing secure Door-to-Door Brexit solutions and supporting your trade.
