The UK has left the EU and the way we used to trade with EU member states has changed, resulting in a greater administrative load, confusion at borders and attendant costs.  Issues that previously didn’t need to be considered are now at the forefront of getting UK goods to EU customers.  An understanding of those issues is paramount to efficient and successful trading going forward.
