Now, the UK and the EU have reached a trade cooperation agreement, which stipulates new trade terms from January 1, 2021. What impact will the terms have on the seller’s business? Amazon announced as follows:
A new customs border between the UK and the EU has been established. People and goods passing through the customs border of both sides may be subject to additional inspection. More details can be found on the UK government website or through the local government websites of EU countries.
As announced in July 2020, Amazon has been unable to ship seller’s goods to the UK / EU border. Trans EU transshipment, cross-border fulfillment via EFN and cross-border returns between the UK and the EU have stopped.
In order to ensure the normal sales of sellers, Amazon suggests that sellers send their inventory to freight centers in the UK and the EU. If the seller plans to ship the goods into the UK / EU, the seller must ensure that the customs requirements for cross-border transportation are met to avoid delay.
Sellers can find details on the Amazon brexit help page.
