    EU hauliers are starting to refuse deliveries to the U.K. in January

    Brexit Border Chaos Prompts Warning Truckers Will Ditch U.K. - Bloomberg

    Of particular concern is the raft of food and produce the U.K. imports, Mortensen said. Delays could see everything from bananas to salmon passing their use-by dates aboard trucks and being unusable by the time they reach their destinations.

    “It looks very concerning at the moment,” he said. “Chaos and unpredictability can lead to trucking capacity being allocated to other markets, leaving U.K. supermarkets with less than full shelves.”

    Last week, the chairman of supermarket chain Tesco Plc, John Allan, warned of shortages of fresh produce for a month or two after Dec. 31, and said shoppers could expect to pay more for their food.
    Hope that unicorn meat tastes good

      Well it is just after Christmas when everybody in the country is on a diet and going to gyms and eating only superfoods. So yeah, bring on empty shelves, we can easily manage that. I am tired of seeing grapes from Egypt and avocados from Peru clogging up the shelves.

        Except they'll be closed. Perhaps they'll go on long bracing walks in the sunny uplands?

          Neither of which will be affected by delays at Calais.

            Shipped to Rotterdam and then distributed across Europe. They are affected by delays at Calais.

              The other way around UK to EU., there will also be problems. All Amazon returns which came from mainland Europe will be going nowhere, snowflake brexiteers will start moaning where their refunds are (and blame the EU in the process)

                  The fact that my removal company have shifted my UK to DE house move from to February makes me happy to know this.
