The United Kingdom is due to leave the European Union at 11pm on the 29th of March.



Our relationship with our customers is very important. We would like to give you some practical information in case there will be ‘no-deal’ Brexit on the 31 October. This is however an evolving situation and we will endeavour to maintain updates accordingly.


Below you will find links to three different letters, our general information which we believe is important for you to take part of but also how to book depending on if you have business on the North Sea or on the Irish Sea.


The information only applies in case of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. In other cases, it will be ‘business as usual’ or other conditions may apply, which we will issue updated information about if needed.


In case of a ‘no-deal’ Brexit, we would like to inform you of the new requirements to ensure your freight will continue to flow on our EU routes to and from the United Kingdom. Should you have further questions regarding Stena Line’s policy and procedures, please do not hesitate to contact your account manager.

Important Brexit-related changes to the Standard Terms of Business for Stena Line Customers


As advised in our previous notification, in preparation for the prospect of a no-deal Brexit, we have added new clauses to our Freight Terms of Business to account for the changed legal and procedural landscape should the United Kingdom leave the EU without an agreement. These revised terms will apply automatically from day one of a no-deal situation.


Click here to read the amended terms of business.


Please ensure that you have read and understood the section entitled ‘CUSTOMS REQUIREMENTS FOR TRAVEL FROM/TO THE UNITED KINGDOM TO/FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION’, where all the relevant new clauses are held.


It is important to note that shipping on a Stena Line service on or after day one of a no-deal situation will be held to constitute full acceptance of these new terms.
