Brexit carrier status

Because you have booked one or more shipments to the UK via Transsmart in the last 6 weeks, we email you this important Brexit information.

Changes
As you know, the final decision on Brexit will be announced on 29 March. This will entail major changes for logistics. In other words: if you want to keep shipping to the UK, you must do something now!

At Transsmart we have also been busy moving our data center from the United Kingdom to Germany for some time, so that we stay in line with GDPR legislation. We also push the carriers to communicate their changes so that we can process them in time and you can continue to book your shipments.

What do you have to pay attention to?
The carrier(s) with whom you ship to the UK are busy making adjustments behind the scenes. Have you already discussed with them whether things will change in the data? This is of great importance to you! Finally, you must see whether your source system & your processes are geared to these changes.

Checklist
In February we shared a short checklist with more things to look out for around the Brexit. You can find this checklist here.

Status of carriers
We keep track of the 'Brexit status' of all our connected carriers with whom our customers book UK shipments. We have put this in a clear table for you. Curious as to how your carriers are doing? Check out the table below:

Status & actions explained
