What is happening: Even with the UK desperately trying to put contingency plans in place, it is likely that a no deal Brexit will damage the British maritime sector.
When is this happening: The Brexit deadline is March 29.
Helpless: Top UK maritime officials claims there is almost nothing British carriers, ports, or service providers can do to fully prepare for the potential no deal Brexit. Despite contingency plans such as new ferry services, big changes are going to be needed, and these will likely take a long time to put in place.
Brexit: If Brexit does go through without a new trade and customs agreement, the UK maritime supply chain could be hit hard. English Channel supply chains are unlikely able to cope with such a drastic change.
