    Re: Amazon updates its Brexit guidance, advises seller action

    Even with normal Amazon purchases,just tracking a number of packages(bought on the UK website),a surprising number are sent from German fulfillment centres. So expect the same things to apply to many Amazon purchases too,so expect prices to rise. I also noticed due that suppliers for electronics use EU wide mechanisms,so I suspect the same applies for a lot of our local sellers too,as they are probably imported via places such as Holland. This is why when Apple tried to ban import of HTC phones to Europe they targetted banning sales in Holland first. I also noticed a lot of US companies when starting European operations,tend to have operations in Holland,ie,when Massdrop used to operate in Europe,their warehousing was in Holland.

    The problem is even though our ports can accept some of the biggest container shops,the capacity is significantly lower than the ones in Holland,Belgium and Germany,which is kind of ridiculous(and a distinct lack of foresight too for an island nation such as ours - more of that short termism at play). I suppose a free trade agreement with the US might help,so we use US centric suppliers instead of EU based ones!

    Typo - "oven ready" instead of "over ready".

    Not that it really changes the context. We've still been sold the contents of the proverbial Bournemouth beach burger box.

    Fully agree - Crazy to do all this so quickly. I can't see how this is going to end well. We have near zero the infrastructure for this and jamming in something into a field near Ashford is far to little far to late.

    It doesn't affect them - shortage of champagne due to border delays you say?? Just get Jeeves to fly over on one's private jet to retrieve a few bottles from the Chateau!

    Re: Amazon updates its Brexit guidance, advises seller action

    At least they've stopped all the awful radio ads saying, "To find out what your business needs to do to prepare for Brexit call our helpline...." When nobody (including the government) knew what the deal was going to be. That must've cost them millions and was completely pointless.

    I predict 1.5 forum pages before this thread descends into bitter name-calling and abuse sufficient to lock it down.

    Can't wait to pay 20% premium on everything like they do in Australia.

    This monitor costs 1000$ in US? 1000€ in eu? Well, we have you covered - with border tax its 1200£!

    How was doing it more slowly going to help? Both sides have been talking at each other all year, and the known start positions haven't changed. Nor will they until the last minute (however it's defined).

    Had the transition period been, what? Three years? All that would have done is added two more years of uncertainty and of each side simply repeating it's position, and only at the deferred last minute was anything going to change ... if it is ever going to change.

    Or maybe 10 years? Then they could repeat themselves without change for an extra 9 years.

    If more time was going to enable change, we'd have seen some willingness to compromise already. By both sides.

    We've left. That horse has already bolted. More time for 'transition' just extends the damage of uncertainty, and reduces the motivation for both sides to get on with real negotiations ... if compromise is possible at all.

    Either we exit transition with compromise, or we exit transition without compromise, but extending transition just delays the inevitable.

    Well, who does? Nobody has come forward with one? Gravity models hardly qualify.
