Brexit Truck Permits Creates Rush

by | Feb 21, 2019

With the possibility of a hard Brexit, the UK has been overrun with requests for permits giving truckers open access to the EU.

The permits were originally created to help EU nations trade with neighbours like Turkey and Ukraine. However, with current negotiations at a stand still and the deadline of March 29th getting closer, the permits may end up as a last resort for UK truckers to go freely within the bloc.

So far, Britain’s Department of Transport has received more than 11,000 applications for the 984 passes.

The passes have been distributed based on how many international trips a company made in the past 12 months and what percentage of its business is international. An extra 2,832 short-term permits will start to be allocated by March.
