January 1 has come and gone, and Brexit is officially upon us. By now, many of you are feeling the effects of the new rules that change how the UK and EU will work, live, and trade.
At BluJay, we understand how stressful the process and particularly the past month has been, which is why we have been serving up content to help your organisation prepare. One such example is our “Coffee Break Brexit” (CBB) webinar series.
The series contains 12 episodes with BluJay’s subject matter experts, who provide insight on the latest developments and offer advice for businesses currently navigating the new normal, including how to leverage technology to alleviate friction.
In this edition of CBB, “Trading with our Nearest Neighbours,” BluJay’s Director, Solution Consulting, Stefan Tarneberg, details the importance of simplified procedures, capabilities of the UK leg, and your customs obligations.
