No need for dis-May

With the UK election ending in a hung parliament, the international delivery experts, ParcelHero, say the result is potentially an unexpectedly good one for the UK’s export and logistics businesses

While many businesses will be dismayed by the uncertainty caused by a hung parliament, ParcelHero says the result could in fact be remarkably good news for exporters and international freight transport companies.

ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks MILT says: ‘ParcelHero has serious concerns over the potential impact of tariffs and Custom’s red tape following a so called ‘Hard Brexit’. A strong win would have strengthened Theresa May’s hand in Brexit negotiations; but that could have resulted in a tougher Brexit deal. Remember her manifesto stated that ‘no deal is better than a bad deal’ - potentially alarming for UK transport companies and exporters.

‘May will now form an alliance with the DUP in order for the Conservatives to remain in office; but there will be an increased need for consensus with other parties - and both the Labour Party and Lib-Dems are in favour of a softer Brexit.

‘Our industry had been looking at a likely scenario of a Brexit deal that involved the UK leaving the Single Market; inevitably leading to new tariffs and Customs delays. However, Labour and the Conservatives oppose leaving the Single Market. That means the odds are that we will now get a Brexit deal that is considerably softer-boiled than it would have been, in order for it to pass the promised vote for MPs at the end of the negotiations.

‘In further good news for exporters the result has again weakened the pound; which makes UK products increasingly affordable overseas.’
