“The Brexit landscape continues to change with the latest addition of the new Kent Access Permit (KAP) scheme that has been put in place for lorries entering the county of Kent from 1st of January. Close relationships and co-ordination with your logistics partners and customs agents is the key to ensuring a smooth journey.
Along with the border systems and controls put in place for customs clearance and carriers from the 1st of January 2021, time is of the essence and it’s imperative that you have the control and visibility of your supply chain. By partnering with Maersk and Twill we have a variety of solutions and experts across our logistics segment that support and guide you through the new and challenging environment.”
