As another new year begins – our 30th! – we look back at a year on the International Forwarding blog and our most popular posts of 2018. It was a year that brought Brexit deadlines, the FIFA World Cup, new rules and regulations in the world of freight, and some fun events for Team IFL.
In reverse order, our most read posts of 2018 were:

A guide for our non-EU customers through the UK’s new Fulfilment House Due Diligence Scheme – or FHDDS for short – a new government scheme aiming to crack down on tax evasion by unscrupulous online retailers.
For anyone fascinated by the logistics of the world’s biggest football tournament.
What can import-export businesses do to prepare for the uncertainty ahead in European freight and logistics?
