After the recommendation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Port of Rotterdam Authority has yet again put a hold on the Preparatory measures for a No Deal Brexit.
This is because the agreement has been extended by the European Union and the United Kingdom on a Brexit extension until 31 January 2020.
This implies for the buffer parking location for trucks will be dismantled again. This parking was for those tricks that will not have their papers in order as a result of Brexit.
The extension, however, does not imply the cancellation. Though the exit of the United Kingdom from the EU has been extended, there is also a possibility of a No Deal Brexit on the 31st of January 2020. Thus, the Port of Rotterdam will continue to stress on the exporters and importers to use PortBase in order to pre-alert the vessels digitally.
