UK Border Readiness – what does Brexit mean for hauliers and drivers?

2 March 2021

As we head further into 2021 and the impact of Brexit becomes ever more apparent, one of the more critical discussion points is how it will affect the movement of goods between the UK and EU, and what it will mean for businesses within the haulage and transport industries.

To ensure you can continue to trade with Europe – and the world – and be confident that you are following the new rules correctly, the Business Gateway Growth Hub has launched their EU Connections campaign, which aims to make this period less confusing by helping business leaders – including hauliers – in Leicester and Leicestershire gain access to the right information to enable them to focus on running their operations and trading successfully with minimum disruption.

A critical component of their EU Connections toolbox is a useful program of webinars that can be viewed live, or on catch-up.

An upcoming webinar focussing on UK Border Readiness is scheduled for Monday 15 March (2:00 pm-3:00 pm).  Hauliers, drivers and business professionals within the transport and logistics sector are invited to attend this webinar, where they will be provided with the tools that they will need to continue to trade with and within EU countries.

This 60-minute interactive webinar will focus on:

  • What Brexit means for Hauliers and Drivers.
  • What Hauliers and Drivers need to do now.
  • Changes following the UK-EU agreement and what documentation will be needed.
  • How a Customs Broker can help you overcome difficulties.
  • Previous Frequently Asked Questions from RHA Customs Brokerage webinar series.

Commenting on the upcoming UK Border Readiness webinar, Growth Hub Manager, Jon Egley says:

“There has been an exponential rise in red tape and new documentation when it comes to moving goods and people in and out of the UK.  To remain competitive, with minimum fuss or fines, it is critical that our hauliers are up to date with the new ways of working.  This webinar will give hauliers and drivers – whether regular or occasional border crossers – all the right tools to navigate future journeys with minimum delay”.
