It is expected that the United Kingdom will soon leave the European Union following it’s triggering of Article 50. The situation however is still uncertain and there are still possibilities of an exit with or without a deal. Should the UK leave the EU without a deal then it is expected that trading will take place against rules set down by the World Trade Organisation (WTO). The general opinion is that such a situation will cause delays at ports and transit times will inevitably be longer. Again we must stress that this is also uncertain.
