Mapix technologies preparing for Brexit
Ensuring we are ready for Brexit
There is turmoil in Parliament in Westminster and Brussels regarding Brexit. This will continue until at least 31 January 2020. However, the team at Mapix technologies are preparing whatever the outcome.
Mapix have considered the possible scenarios. Including, how they may affect the import and export of LiDAR equipment. The Mapix team are making the necessary preparations. As the official Velodyne distributor for the UK, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, we understand the importance of moving products smoothly and efficiently across borders. We have over ten years of experience working with HMRC. We understand dealing with customs processes as effectively as possible.
Mapix are utilising a Government grant to ensure customs documentation and procedures are in place. Also this is being supported with specialist staff training by the Institute of Exports. We already have our Economic Operators Registration and Identification (EORI) in place. Also the Transitional Simplified Processes (TSP) are arranged to streamline processes. With the support of this grant we will be meeting with our supplier partners and key customers in Europe to ensure we are all prepared.
Ensuring smooth flow of products
Mapix CTO and founder Gert Riemersma commented, “Brexit is an unsettling experience for businesses, especially our customers in Europe. Please be reassured that we will be able to continue to import and export products and our levels of service will not be affected. Whatever the outcome of Brexit over the next weeks and months we will be ready. We have taken pro-active action to avert any potential issues.”
