Yodel's Brexit update

Here at Yodel, we will keep you updated with the necessary information and guidance, and work with you to ensure you are post-Brexit prepared.

In December 2019, the UK Government voted in agreement for a new Brexit deal, which meant that the 31st January 2020 saw the UK leave the EU, and the beginning of the transition period as stated in the Withdrawal Agreement.

This transition period ended at midnight on the 31st December 2020, with the UK no longer a member of the EU.

Following this, there are certain requirements on all shipments between the UK and EU, and GB and NI. Official guidance has been published by HMRC, advising of these requirements for express parcel carriers, i.e. Yodel.

 

Shipments to Northern Ireland

  • Yodel has continued to work closely with HMRC on process requirements concerning Prohibited & Restricted goods, particularly those entering Northern Ireland
  • Unfortunately, due to current lack of clarity on how customs declarations are submitted in compliance with additional border checks, from 1st April 20221 Yodel can no longer accept any Prohibited or Restricted items as confirmed by HMRC for carriage and delivery in Northern Ireland 
  • You can find a full list of affected items here

 

Shipments to Europe, including ROI

  • Shipments to Europe and ROI will be treated as an international parcel via our international delivery partners, DG International
  • There is now a requirement to provide additional data for each parcel in order to comply with the new customs declaration process and policy
  • Our shipping tool specification has been successfully updated to include the provision of the new data fields
  • Parcels received into our network which don’t comply with the new customs process will be returned to sender
  • We have listed out the required processes to follow when exporting to the EU within our Brexit guide, and for more information on the export of goods from the UK, please visit https://www.gov.uk/export-goods

 

At Yodel, we are working closely with the relevant government departments to understand any changes as they happen, so we can react and communicate to our clients. At this point, we are working towards the same requirements as set out in our latest Brexit guide, please continue to work towards these instructions.

The Yodel Brexit team continues to support you through this transition and if you require any assistance relating to the additional data fields, or pre-advice testing, please contact BrexIT@yodel.co.uk.
