Release Notes – New Horizon Brexit Changes (Updated)

Last night there was an upgrade to New Horizon to make the platform ready for Brexit. The changes deployed are as a result of the Brexit Deal and the Northern Ireland Protocol.
 
The deployment was successful and additional functionality and information requirements are now live in New Horizon.
 
The release notes on the button below provides all details of the new functionality when sending shipments to Northern Ireland.
 
The APC API and data plug are still work in progress. So for the time being when sending consignments to Northern Ireland they must be done through the web portal.

APC – Deliveries To Eire & Northern Ireland Service Changes


Changes to Eire Service (Southern Ireland)

From 1st January 2020, all shipments to and from Eire will be subject to customs and excise protocols. Given those additional customs and excise requirements, APC have reviewed whether we they continue to offer a service to Eire within their Domestic service framework. APC have concluded that this is not practical and therefore they will now treat services to Eire as an international destination, and therefore a non – APC service from 1st January 2021. 

Courier Logistics are working to set up an alternative option for our Customers to ship consignments to and from Eire. All existing pricing and booking procedures with APC will be removed and not available. We are in the final stages of setting up the alternative option for Eire shipments, should you wish to enquire about the pricing specifically for this service please email sales@courierlogsitcs.co.uk where we will respond accordingly once we have the full information available.  


Deliveries To Northern Ireland Preparation Whilst we still await to hear whether we have a deal on our relationship with Europe, it is still very likely that customers shipping to Northern Ireland will be required to include further information on their consignments.
 
It’s therefore worth prompting action and getting Brexit ready.
 
The Government has a handy website it is worth pointing customers towards: – https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/moving-goods-into-out-of-or-through-northern-ireland-from-1-january-2021
 
Considerations: –   May need to apply to be set up as “authorised” under the UK Trader scheme. May need an EORI number that starts with XI (They can apply via the HMRC site – see attached pdf). If the consignment is B2B, the recipient EORI number may be required. May need to get assistance from a provider of customs support if not using Trader Support Service. Customers will need to find the right Commodity Codes for the goods being sent. Further information can be found at https://www.gov.uk/trade-tariff. Full descriptions of goods (to item level) being sent may be required. Value of goods (detailed at item level) is likely to be needed. Country of origin (This is not the same as country being sent from).  
New Horizon will be ready to capture the additional information that may be required.
 
As soon as we are fully aware of the actual requirements, we will communicate again.

Shout out to this fantastic group of young people.

A local under 11’s grassroots team made up of just 10 boys which Courier Logistics are proud to sponsor.

After hearing about Marcus Rashford campaigning for families to be provided with meals or food vouchers over the school holidays, the team decided they wanted to help those struggling in the local community. When they heard about The Link making emergency food parcels for Christmas they decided this would be a great cause to get behind.

Well done to all of you, your families must be mega proud of you as will everyone in the community.

You’re truly amazing 🤩
