Flanders Investment & Trade, the official regional body, is hosting a free webinar on customs procedures on inbound goods, future changes and logistics aimed at all businesses looking for advice on trading in Europe in a post-Brexit world. Taking place on Tuesday 14th September at 10am (UK time), it will include speakers ready to share their expertise on how to trade in Europe, including Daan Schalck, CEO North Sea Port and Vice Chairman at Espo, Jeroen Sarrazyn, Brexit Coordinator at Customs and Excise department at the Ministry of Finance in Belgium and British Chamber of Commerce in Brussels. There will also be a session led by Customs and Excise.
Flanders Investment & Trade offer UK SMEs free advice on logistics, distribution centres and legislation. Following an initial 41% drop in UK goods going to the EU in January this year, they have reported that they’re now seeing a return to pre-Brexit levels. Many UK companies have managed the challenges posed by Brexit by investing in a base in Flanders and trading with the EU from there. However, some companies are still struggling, with 11% of UK SMEs avoiding the EU and looking at other markets.
