Brexit-Update: What you need to know

While the trade negotiations between the UK and the European Union continue to make slow progress, the month of June provided the last opportunity for the British government to extend the transitional period, which is currently limited to 31 December 2020. With no request for extension having been made, the focus is now on a gradual introduction of customs controls in the United Kingdom from January 1, 2021. The transition period is designed to allow traders to recover from the effects of COVID-19 and prepare for the new requirements. The United Kingdom will be subject to full customs control at its borders by 1 July 2021.

Earlier this year, the UK government took steps to eliminate certain customs facilitations, including the Transitional Simplified Procedures (TSP) and the Import VAT (PVA) shift. However, the British government has recognized that customs relief will also be necessary, at least temporarily, on January 1, 2021.

Thus, the possibility of shifting the import turnover tax is to be reintroduced. In addition, for a transitional period, there will be a customs procedure which will allow the imported goods to be declared by entering them in the accounts within a period of six months, rather than immediately upon importation. This procedure is called "Deferred Declaration".

An EU summit meeting for final talks between Great Britain and the EU will take place from 17 to 18 October 2020. Finally, on 19 October 2020 the results of a "deal or no-deal" scenario should be available. 

Regardless of the outcome of the talks, it is expected that from January 2021 onwards all goods exported to and from the UK will require tariff treatment, albeit during the transitional period described above as part of a process graduated by product group.

The following link will take you to a tool that outlines the required measures: https://www.gov.uk/transition

The UK government has also published details of preparation as an importer and exporter from/to the UK, which can be viewed via the links below:

Short update on the general situation in the transport sector

In the second half of the year, the corona pandemic is still the predominant topic in the media. While at the beginning of the pandemic new findings on Covid-19 were being announced almost daily and many updates were also published by DACHSER on loading restrictions in Europe as well as in America and APAC, something like a "new normality" has now returned.

At the moment, there are no longer any universal country or customer restrictions. We would therefore like to ask our customers to clarify individual restrictions such as closures, changed opening hours etc. with the recipients of the goods themselves. We are closely monitoring the further course of the corona pandemic and will keep you informed immediately of any developments. Should new loading restrictions be imposed, these will be published again via our website.

If you have any questions on this subject, please contact your local contact person at the respective DACHSER branch.

DACHSER Food Logistics - a reliable partner in the Corona crisis

The corona pandemic has posed and continues to pose major challenges for DACHSER Food Logistics. During the shutdown in March, the company succeeded in maintaining its ability to deliver without interruption, thus making an important contribution to supplying the population.

During this challenging period, the system relevance was thus demonstrated without any restrictions for the suppliers. The weeks of March were characterized by extreme daily fluctuations and peaks in volume, which DACHSER Food Logistics normally only experiences before Christmas: kilometre-long traffic jams at border crossings, long waiting times at retail warehouses and drastic restrictions for drivers on suppliers' premises or when unloading at the recipient addresses. The extreme slump in the catering and wholesale sales channels has also led to a considerable under-utilisation of the small vehicle fleet.

Positive customer feedback motivates

The Business Line has received letters of thanks or verbal praise from many customers for its reliability during these challenging times. "We are very pleased and extremely proud of this, because such gestures testify to a high level of appreciation and customer satisfaction," says Alfred Miller, Managing Director DACHSER Food Logistics. "They also encourage us not to slacken our commitment. We will continue to offer our customers the best possible service in future and help them to revitalize their distribution channels".

During the dry spell of the past few weeks, DACHSER Food Logistics has kept its fleet capacities fully operational for the post-Corona period. Alfred Miller: "We are prepared and look forward to continuing to work in partnership with our customers".

Emissions calculations with DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics

For several years now, DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics has been compiling so-called carbon footprints (calculation of the CO₂ balance sheet) of freight transports and summarizing the individual transport-related calculations in emissions reports. The preparation of these reports is a value-added service offered to DACHSER Air & Sea Logistics customers worldwide and is tailored to the individual needs of the customer. In general, primary energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and various air pollutants can be calculated at consignment level. This can also be broken down to individual transport sections. In this way, transport-related carbon footprints can be calculated for complete transport chains, including the pre-carriage, main carriage and onward carriage.

DACHSER uses an emissions calculator for the calculations, which meets all the requirements of the European standard for calculating greenhouse gas emissions from passenger and goods transport (EN 16258). Another advantage of the emissions calculator is that the calculation processes are automated via an XML interface to our Othello transport management system. This allows the emission reports to be generated completely automatically.

In general, the emission calculation in the first step serves to determine the primary energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants emitted by transports. However, this information is essential for deriving necessary measures to reduce emissions. Therefore, in addition to the pure calculations, it is also important to be able to provide our customers with further bases for decisions on emission reduction. For this reason, customers receive simulated calculations of alternative means of transport and bundling strategies on request.

In addition to a comparison of the classic means of transport by air and sea, the alternative of rail transport (see DACHSER Rail Services) is also highlighted for customers. 

If you have any questions about our emissions calculator, please contact your DACHSER contact person.
