Ahead of a potential no-deal Brexit on October 31, the Port of Gothenburg has warned importers and exporters to ensure their goods are ready for customs clearance, otherwise face significant delays.
Elvir Dzanic, Gothenburg Port Authority chief executive, stated: “The exporter must ensure its goods are ready for clearance through customs before they reach the Port of Gothenburg and our terminals. That is the message we are sending out to the market.
“If an exporter does not have everything in place, they won’t get in to the port. The same principle applies to imports from the UK – goods that are not ready for clearance before they are shipped to Sweden risk getting stuck at our terminals.
