Brexit: consignments of goods to the UK
What impact does Brexit have on shipping to the UK?

If Great Britain leaves the European Union, this will have an impact on the shipment of goods to the UK. Together with its partners, Swiss Post has prepared itself for the various versions of Brexit. Shipments of goods from Swiss business customers to Great Britain are guaranteed in the usual quality.

For more detailed information we refer directly to the websites of our network partners.

Swiss Post GLS

Our international network partner GLS is ready for the Brexit and has prepared solutions for transport and customs clearance. For Swiss Post GLS customers using GLS-inco-terms 10, 20, 30 and 40, Brexit does not change anything. Further information can be found on the GLS website.

URGENT Business

URGENT Business shipments are processed and delivered worldwide in the TNT/FedEx network. Their team in Great Britain is prepared for the possible scenarios and provides information on a specially set up website. There will be no changes for the Swiss shipper.

PostPac International

The parcels to Great Britain are processed and delivered by our local partner Parcelforce, the parcel division of the state-owned postal company Royal Mail. Information about Brexit can be found on their website.

There are no changes for the Swiss PostPac International sender. It is important that the shipping documents are created electronically in our online service "Create waybill (on account)". This enables us to supply the necessary customs clearance data in advance and considerably shorten the customs clearance process.
