According to British media reports, the latest industry data shows that since the end of the Brexit transition period on January 1 this year, due to the extension of import and export procedures, it will take 8 to 16 hours for each shipment to complete the new paperwork.
Customs documents and health certificates exported to the EU, for example, have greatly affected the trade of live seafood that needs to be shipped as soon as possible, causing some fish prices to plummet and forcing some fishing boats to stay in ports.
At the same time, the end of the Brexit transition has also caused some interference to French fishermen.
On Tuesday (12th), the head of the French authorities accused the British procedure of being too slow to provide licenses to French vessels that need to enter British waters for fishing in time.
It is understood that large import and export companies have begun to look for smooth ways to deliver goods to the European Union, but overall, little progress has been made.
