The UK Chamber of Shipping has welcomed proposals from the Department for Exiting the European Union (DExEU) for customs arrangements that could be implemented after the Brexit.

Proposals include a ‘highly streamlined’ customs arrangement with the EU, and a transitional period. Guy Platten, CEO of UK Chamber of Shipping, considers the paper to be a significant step forward in providing reassurance to British and European businesses, and the shipowners that facilitate their trade.
