Harwich Haven Authority Brexit statement

13 February 2019

The Authority will continue to work closely with all port facilities and customers within the Haven Ports to ensure that the maritime access to the Haven is not impacted adversely in the event of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit subsequent to 29 March 2019.

We anticipate that the range – and level of – services we currently provide to customers will be unaffected by a ‘no-deal’ Brexit; and we’ll continue to manage vessel movements in accordance to the needs of the Haven’s port facilities.

Customers who have concerns about port congestion post-Brexit should in the first instance direct their questions to the relevant port facility. All queries and notifications regarding pilotage and the movement of vessels should be made to Harwich VTS in the normal manner.
