Yodel plan Brexit ready pre-peak deadline
Yodel are letting their clients know that they are working to a pre-peak Brexit deadline of the 2nd November 2020, over 2 months earlier than the official deadline date 1st January 2021. They state this is to ensure everyone is Brexit-ready in preparation for the busy Christmas period.
Changes to this might occur depending on whether or not there is a deal but information on this can be found in their guide.
The message to Yodel clients is detailed below:
In December 2019, the UK Government voted in agreement for a new Brexit deal, which meant that the 31st January 2020 saw the UK leave the EU, and also the beginning of the transition period as stated in the Withdrawal Agreement.
This transition period lasts until the 31st December 2020, which will allow both the UK and the EU to arrange a suitable trade deal that would come into effect on the 1st January 2021, if a deal can not be reached or agreed upon, the World Trade Organisation will rule.
Although the deadline is the 1st January 2021, Yodel is working to a pre-peak deadline of the 2nd November 2020 to ensure all clients are Brexit-ready moving into our busiest time. We are working thoroughly to ensure everything is in place our end, and that we and our clients are prepared whatever the outcome.
There are three likely changes whether there is or is not a deal, but to differing degrees. Information on these changes and what you need to know to prepare and be compliant for Brexit, is outlined in the ‘Yodel Brexit Guide – Sept 2020’.
Yodel are taking every step to make sure we are ready for Brexit so that we can continue to delivery your parcels and promises.
