The Road Haulage Association has said the government will need to address some key transport concerns to ensure the success of Brexit. The RHA’s chief executive said, “We need to maintain fluidity through the ports for the trucks that provide a vital trade service. Should the UK exit the single market and the customs union, it is clear that HM Customs will need to have significantly greater resources than at present. We need to have the ability to clear customs without delay, 24/7. The customs resource, as it stands, quite simply would not be able to cope. We are calling on the government to establish a working group to scale up customs resources in time for Brexit. It should include representatives from the international freight industry to ensure confidence that we will be ready for the change.”
The RHA’s other main concern is to allow the industry the ability to bring in workers in from abroad when and where they are needed – currently about 60,000 foreign lorry drivers work in the UK and the industry could not function as it should without them.
