Brexit refers to the United Kingdom’s (UK) decision to leave the European Union (EU). Brexit has changed the way goods are traded, and, the provision of services. Key areas that have been impacted include the areas of Customs Clearance and Export Compliance.
The Trade Gateways Network is operated by Local Merchant Services, (LMS) in co-operation with significant partners. LMS have been providing Digital Trade Services since 2017. Services are centrally provided to Trade Gateways in the Network in a partnership with IBM.
Brexit.Trade is part of the TRADE GATEWAYS Programme. International Trade provides many challenges.

UK exports have fallen since Brexit - in part due to the form-filling that's now required for access to the European Single Market. Brexit.Trade facilitates capturing all necessary data about a container for the importing nation’s customs officials before it even leaves its country of origin.
Brexit has provided an administrative headache that has grown increasingly painful for UK exporters since Brexit. At Brexit.Trade, users can use End To End Logistics from relevant Digital Trade Gateways as detailed to help overcome problems posed by Brexit

1. The significance of the TRADE GATEWAYS network:
Rather like the analogy of the ports or airports network. Each one has the infrastructure to get you from point A to point B. The wider the network, the more places you can get to.
2. The interoperability of the system with other platforms
Significance of Brexit.Trade
For many UK companies, the EU is still where the majority of their sales take place. Some companies grew and expanded thanks to access to the EU market. Successful UK businesses can have a relatively low percentage of domestic sales and for those companies maintaining and continuing to grow their EU sales is still important.

Regardless of the precise local setup, the highly experienced staff of our Logistics Providers can help TRADE GATEWAYS users handle all their customs needs - from completing a customs declaration form, to a customs invoice and other customs documents.
Our Logistics Providers have expertise in local conditions, regulatory requirements, tariff updates, and more. With this knowledge, they can process custom clearances with accuracy and efficiency.
Trade Compliance: Post Brexit Cross Border Trade is a complex world of rules, tariffs, duties, and taxes. Our Logistics Partners can be of great help.
Trade compliance is the umbrella term for adherence to the regulations in place between any two countries when importing or exporting goods.
This can include duties, taxes, risk determination, classification, and more. Not paying the correct amount of duties can result in large fines from the government and delays at ports of entry. It is important to determine the current specific duty rates from all possible government agencies, and our Logistics Partners do just that, as well as provide the services detailed below.
Additional Tariffs – Once products are properly classified, our Logistics Partners will determine whether they are subject to additional tariffs.
Free Trade Agreements - FTAs can change or be halted, resulting in unexpected changes. Our Logistics Partners alert TRADE GATEWAYS users to any unnecessary duties they may be paying.
Partner Government Agencies - Our Logistics Partners are able to determine if products are subject to any PGAs.
Intellectual Property Rights Confirmation - Our Logistics Partners will ensure goods comply with IPR guidelines.
