Preparing for Brexit

Customers are the heart of our business, and you need to know that we're prepared for Brexit.

Our team of experts are staying close to the UK government, attending round tables with the Department of Transport and sharing information as we get it.

All this hard work means that you can trust us to be as ready as possible when we leave the European Union.

We know uncertainty is worrying, but we are confident that our global network and years of experience mean that we're best placed to support you and keep your customers satisfied.

Brexit may have been extended, but we're not taking our foot off the gas. We're using this extra time to become even more prepared and to automate processes where possible to keep your goods moving.

What are we doing to mitigate the risk?

Kuehne + Nagel has taken key experts from within our business across Airfreight, Overland, Seafreight, Contract Logistics, Customs and Compliance, Human Resources, Legal and Sales to form a steering committee to guide both our Customers and our business moving forward.

The team is driving discussions with Government bodies such as HM Revenue & Customs in addition to industry bodies in a truly collaborative approach.

The team has three main work streams:

  • Our Customers; to bring industry knowledge through a closer relationship and support the transition when the UK leaves the EU and beyond. In parallel, we will organise customer forums together with industry leaders to keep all stakeholders involved.
  • Our Colleagues; to inform, support and guide our people on potential requirements and to continue to invest in them.
  • Our Suppliers; to continue developing partnerships for a mutually beneficial outlook.
