The UK leaves the European Union on 31st.January 2020.

So exactly what happens next....well the short answer is nothing.

The UK will still be governed by E.U rules so nothing changes and everything stops exactly the same and shipping too other E.U countries remains exactly the same as per pre the U.K leaving the E.U.

Why?  Well this is because the U.K enters into transitional talks with the E.U to agreed trade deals and has until December 2020 though this could be extended until into 2021.

Below information from above website:

What is the Brexit transition period?

The Brexit transition is a period agreed in the UK-EU Withdrawal Agreement in which the UK will no longer be a member of the EU but will continue to be subject to EU rules and remain a member of the single market and customs union.

This will allow the UK to continue its current relationship with the EU while the future trading relationship and  security co-operation is negotiated.

The UK government does not use the term transition: instead it prefers to refer to this period as an “implementation period”.

Why does the UK need a transition period?

The EU will not negotiate details of new arrangements with the UK until it ceases to be an EU member. The transition period is designed to provide time for that new relationship to be agreed while ensuring that business will only need to adapt to non-EU rules once the future deal is agreed.

How long will the transition period last?

The Withdrawal Agreement specifies that the transition period will last until 31 December 2020. That end-date was included in Theresa May’s original withdrawal agreement. If this deal had been approved by Parliament, then it would have allowed 21 months for the completion and ratification of negotiations on the long-term relationship. The subsequent delays to the UK's withdrawal from the EU will mean that the transition period will now last for 11 months.

The terms of the Withdrawal Agreement allow the UK–EU Joint Committee to extend the transition period by up to two years, but it must sign off on the length of any extension before 1 July 2020. EU lawyers say that once that window is missed, EU law makes it very difficult to agree to any extension.

The government has ruled out any extension to transition and is legislating for a commitment not to agree to any extension in the Withdrawl Bill Agreement. The government would then only be able to reverse that provision through new legislation.

What will stay the same during the transition

The UK will stay part of the EU’s economic institutions and security co-operation arrangements.

The UK will continue to be treated as a member of the single market and customs union and the EU has requested that states with EU trade agreements treat the UK as a member state until the end of transition.

Freedom of movement will remain in place and citizens rights will continue unaffected until the end of the period.

The UK will still be subject to EU law and the rulings of the European Court of Justice throughout the transition period.
