DFDS: Postponed Brexit is good news
EU’s offer to postpone Brexit until 22 May or 12 April, removes the risk of a hard Brexit on 29 March. This is really good news for DFDS, says CEO Niels Smedegaard, DFDS.
“It is really good news, not only for DFDS, but also for the many colleagues who had planned to be stand-by to assist our customers and be able to quickly solve Brexit issues round the clock after 29 March”, says Niels Smedegaard.
“It is too early to say what will happen now, but we welcome the EU’s decision as it opens new opportunities for finding better solutions than a no-deal Brexit to the benefit of people and businesses in the UK and the EU, and it does give us more time”.
“However, we still need to carry on our preparations as the risk of a no-deal Brexit on 12 April unfortunately still exists”, Smedegaard says.
