Frictionless trade? What Brexit means for cross-border trade in goods
This paper looks at the integration of UK and European Union (EU) supply chains and the options for securing ‘frictionless trade’ after Brexit. It assesses the various ‘off-the-shelf’ options for the UK’s future relationship with the EU and what each means for the UK’s pan-European supply chains. The paper sets the context for our upcoming Implementing Brexit: Customs paper, where we will explore the work required to prepare the UK’s borders for Brexit.
