Description

Brexit is now a reality; the deal has been signed. Trade between the Ireland and the United Kingdom continues but how smoothly have the channels of trade been since 1 January.

What teething problems have companies, hauliers and freight forwarders faced?

Have these issues been resolved?

What more needs to be done to ensure that goods move freely between the two markets?

To address these and many more issues companies may have encountered since 1 January, Shannon Chamber is delighted to, once again, call on the expert advice of the 4 presenters we had at our pre-Brexit webinar last November.  

Did companies take their sound advice on board?

How prepared were companies for the challenges and actions that would be needed to ensure goods would continue to cross borders?

The Agenda for this Webinar includes:

  • Trade & Co-operation Agreement – overview and what does it mean for business? 
  • Day 1 Readiness – a reflection on steps needed to move goods cross-border. 
  • Logistics journey- experiences to date of moving goods through Irish and UK ports. 
  • Zero tariffs- how does it work and is it a reality?
  • Hints and steps for the post Brexit world – Consideration of Day 2 issues
