Brexit Latest Status
DPD Brexit Update
It was agreed by the EU to extend the deadline for Brexit to 31 January 2020.
During this extension period, up to the 31 January 2020, the UK remains a Member State of the EU which means your goods are able to carry on circulating between the UK and the rest of the EU as they do today, without the need for declarations or Customs checks.
We can confirm that during this period it is very much business as usual and we will deliver your goods to the EU exactly as we do today.
It is possible that the extension period may end earlier than the 31 January 2020, at which time other scenarios are possible, we will proactively advise our customers as and when that happens. In the meantime please refer to this website regularly where we will post any updates to Brexit.
DPDgroup will ensure that we are 'Brexit ready' whatever the scenario and whatever the final date of exit, so that you can continue to ship parcels to your customers throughout the EU.
DPD is fully engaged in the Brexit process and has detailed plans in place.
DPD has been planning meticulously for all possible Brexit scenarios, in particular a 'no-deal' Brexit. In the case of a 'no-deal' Brexit, we will still collect parcels from you in the same way we do today, but we've developed our own in-house clearance process to ensure there's minimal disruption to you and your customers. This means your customers in Europe will continue to receive their parcels with DPD's award-winning Predict service and in-flight options.
What will DPD do next?
Our Brexit plans have been ready to implement since the UK was first due to leave the EU in March 2019. We will continue to refine and update our strategy to minimise any impact or changes for you and your business.
We have a dedicated Brexit team working on all our Brexit plans throughout the Peak period to ensure we are in the best possible situation should the UK leave the EU with no-deal on 31 January.
