At the current time, the date for the EU transition is 31st December 2020.
There is a possibility that the UK may leave without an agreement ("deal") with the EU.
The risks stem from the possibility that hauliers and businesses trading with the EU will not be ready for new checks at EU ports leading to delays and long queues.
All hauliers and businesses trading with the EU should go to the UK gov't website for further advice.
For other businesses in Suffolk there may be knock-on effects, for example...
- Traffic congestion in the region.
- Temporary disruption to the availability of certain commodities such as fuel, certain foods and medicines.
Note - these risks are low, the government has taken measures in key areas, so although it is important for businesses in Suffolk to be aware, there is no need to stockpile any commodities.
