Brexit – Everything you need to know for transports to and from the UK

Since 31 January 2020, the Brexit is a fact. With it, the UK officially left the EU. We are now about 3 years further and a lot has changed. A new Brexit agreement discussing cooperation and trade between the UK entered into force since the beginning of 2021. These new regulations have changed the relations between the EU and the UK.  

We can tell you all sorts of things about the Brexit, which is of course no problem. What we want to avoid is explaining all the details from Brexit. After all, you can assume that all EASY Roaders are well-informed and will advise you on documentation, regulations and things to arrange. That way, you won’t have to immerse yourself into all the fine prints!
