Brexit Transport Plans Are Under Developed
According to a recent report, the Department for Transport’s plans for a “no-deal” Brexit are worryingly under-developed.
The UK will exit from the European Union on 29th March 2019 and the Public Accounts Committee states the DfT has a great deal to do before the approaching date.
A big concern is the potential impact of a non-negotiated deal on customs checks at crucial trade points, such as the Channel Tunnel and the Port of Dover.
An estimated 33,000 freight vehicles enter and exit the UK every day through Dover, and there are limited or no customs checks of freight vehicles with the UK’s current EU membership.
Uncertainty over the outcome of customs checks in a no-deal scenario is concerning businesses who are trying to plan next year’s orders.
