1st March 2021, 9:43 am
Webinar taking place 4th March, 12:00 PM – 01:00 PM
There have been conflicting stories in the press about the volume of freight exports from the UK in the first months of 2021.
The impact of Brexit on importers and exporters will be discussed at our free Zoom Brexit webinar at 12pm on Thursday 4th March. Click here to register.
We have brought together a panel of experts to talk about the impact on cross border trade for businesses, what the threats are, and what potential opportunities might exist.
John Grayston is a solicitor advocate at Brussels-based Grayston and Company, an independent law firm specialising in all aspects of EU Regulatory law.
Richard Newton is Commercial Director at the Port of Tyne, which operates in bulks, cars, logistics, estates, passengers, offshore & renewables.
Melissa Munday is a managing associate at Ward Hadaway. She specialises in marine and insurance litigation and has acted for UK and foreign cargo and liability insurers, freight forwarders, logistics operators and recovery agents.
In conversation with commercial partner Damien Charlton, the three panellists will touch on questions such as:
- What issues are importers and exporters currently experiencing at UK ports at present, and why?
- What can importers and exporters do to mitigate some of the issues?
- What are the teething problems, and what are the long term realities, both in the UK and in the EU?
- Rules of origin: how does it work in practice, and are there alternatives to achieving free of duty access?
- What liabilities might you incur as an importer if goods are caught up in congestion at a port – what steps can be taken to mitigate the costs?
- What is demurrage, and who is liable to pay?
This and more will be covered at 12pm on Thursday 4th March. You can pose your own questions to be considered on the registration form, so book your place below.
