So, what products do you think will be most affected by Brexit?

Well, flowers and plants, components for the automotive sector and food products, among others, may all be greatly affected by Brexit.

In this previous post we talked about how Brexit could affect importers and exporters, both from countries of the EU and those that moved goods from the United Kingdom or that need to cross this territory to reach their destination.

The elimination of the United Kingdom from the Customs Union of the European Union will influence factors such as tariffs, the price of goods or the time they remain in customs, with its consequent variations in temperature, status and delays.

It is already difficult to maintain quality throughout the transport chain, from the origin until it reaches the customer or final consumer. To add to this, there are certain types of goods and more sensitive raw materials that can deteriorate or suffer in its nature because of delays in transportation.

Although we still do not know exactly how different industries will be affected by the exit of the United Kingdom from the EU, we do know certain products will suffer. In Hyland Shipping we believe the products that Brexit will damage the most, will be the following:

  • Flowers and plants.
  • Perishable food.
  • Luxury products.
  • Medicines.
  • Cosmetic and perfumery articles.
  • Artworks.
  • Chemical products.
  • Components and parts for the automotive sector.
  • Construction materials.
  • Technological products.

However, each sector will have its own set of challenges, therefore, we will have to wait until this summer to be able to know and assess the possible damages caused by Brexit to the different industries.

At Hyland Shipping we have been transporting merchandise for our customers by land, sea and air from Ireland to countries of the European Union and Turkey, and vice versa, for more than 35 years. Now, more than ever, we can help you overcome the obstacles of Brexit so that your products reach their destination in the safest and fastest way possible.
