What is happening: Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, a German machine-tool maker, has planned alternate trucking and ocean routes into the UK.
Why is this happening: This comes as companies brace themselves for disruptions and higher prices caused by a possible no deal Brexit.
Plan: The German company have already spent over $250,000 on Brexit preparations. They also expect their trucking costs to rise by between 40 and 50%. However, they are keeping their lips sealed on their new planned routes around the Port of Dover.
