No-deal Brexit: UK exporters risk being locked out of world's harbours

British exporters sending goods to far-flung destinations in the coming days risk being locked out of harbours around the world as a no-deal Brexit looms, business leaders have warned.

Independent trade experts and the UK’s biggest business groups said exporters could be dispatching goods from UK ports imminently that would not arrive until after the 29 March deadline. This raised the prospect of goods being stuck in ports or facing hefty additional costs in the event of a disorderly Brexit.

The warning came as the Bank of England warned the UK economy was on course for its weakest year since the global financial crisis, as evidence suggested Brexit jitters were spreading.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect this is just more fear-mongering by Eurocrats. The people who want to import from Great Britain will still want to import from Great Britain. Harbors make money off of ships that load and unload. So why would they block UK ships?
