Biocair contact details for anything Brexit related

Biocair is fully engaged in the Brexit process and has detailed plans in place

Following the UK’s decision to withdraw from the EU, we want to reassure our customers that, while there may be some challenges ahead, our specialists are monitoring developments and there will be no compromise on the level of service being delivered to you.

Biocair is well positioned to assist with the Brexit process, as we employ technical experts who are able to advise and assist with all aspects of import/export regulation, and our Compliance team works closely with Operations staff to ensure that support provided to shippers is comprehensive and tailored to their requirements.

Additionally, Biocair already provides the necessary services associated with shipments from third-party countries, so we are fully aware of the requirements and the level of detail needed to expedite the clearance process.

In addition to our in-house experience with shipping from third-party countries, Biocair also utilises an extensive network of suppliers who are able to provide assistance with logistical challenges in every EU country. Our network of suppliers, combined with years of experience shipping into EU destinations from third-party countries, enable Biocair to quickly and accurately determine the shipping requirements that must be met.

Biocair is the only major speciality logistics provider in the UK that has a Combined Customs Simplifications/Security and Safety AEO certificate (AEOF).

This demonstrates that our role in the international supply chain is secure and that our customs procedures are efficient, often exceeding EU and competitor standards.

The current situation

At this point in time, and until the end of 2020, we anticipate no real changes to trade or regulations between the UK and EU.

As we move through the year we should begin to get a better idea on what to expect from 2021, and if the situation should change during this time we will be working closely with the authorities and our clients to ensure everyone is adequately prepared.

Should the UK reach a Withdrawal Agreement with the EU, then the current existing documents will continue to be used throughout any transition period.
