FTA runs no-deal Brexit seminars for hauliers

Britain's Freight Transport Association (FTA) says it is running a series of free half-day no-deal Brexit workshops for hauliers as the UK prepares to leave the EU on 31 October.

The workshops are funded by the Department for Transport (DfT), which has chosen FTA to help educate hauliers on the new procedures and trading conditions in a no-deal Brexit.

"With the UK and EU yet to reach an agreement on their future trading relationship, it is vital goods vehicle operators are as prepared as possible for a no-deal Brexit on 31 October," said FTA International Transport & Trade Procedures manager, John Lucy.

"In this scenario, new border procedures and haulier responsibilities will come into effect immediately. Hauliers must ensure they fully understand the new road haulage procedures, documentation requirements and responsibilities that will arise after 31 October 2019; otherwise, they risk their operations coming to a standstill.

"While we are still waiting for clarification from government on several points – such as UK tariff regimes in the medium term – goods vehicle operators must ensure they have done everything in their power to prepare for the challenging times ahead: starting with these workshops."

More than 100 free workshops will take place at locations across the UK, including Belfast, London and Coventry, during September and October, 2019.
