New customs regulations in the UK will lead to high costs
According to a study conducted by experts from the European analytical center Oxera, the new rules of customs screening in the UK can lead to significant delays in the delivery of goods, as well as damage, at minimum estimates, one billion pounds per year.

Transportation experts offer several options for customs control after Brexit, the most convenient of which is the slowdown in trade and the strengthening of control in ports and checkpoints. But at the same time, the number of personnel in port complexes will increase significantly, the time for checking cargo will also increase, experts, note.

This way of customs control is the most likely and will cost one billion pounds a year, says Andrew Miney, the head of the transport department. But initial estimates of costs can be considered quite modest, since the indicated amount does not include many costs, including the cost of creating and equipping new control points, the wages of new employees.
