UK should have post-Brexit customs system in place by early 2019 - minister

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain hopes to have a new customs system in place by the beginning of 2019, before the country leaves the European Union, Brexit minister David Davis told Sky News on Tuesday. "We will have our customs system in place, we think the beginning of 2019, a few months before we leave," he said. He added that it may take other countries longer to get equivalent systems in place.
