Brexit – avoiding Armageddon

Peterborough, UK: The RHA has highlighted the main issues that operators must address to minimise the impact of Brexit, including encouraging all EU citizen employees to get full passports rather than rely on ID Cards.

The second thing that operators can do now is to encourage shippers and consignees to start improving paperwork for international journeys.

RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said: “It’s not certain that ID cards will work after Brexit. And it’s prudent for EU citizens to apply early given potential for backlogs and slow processing times.

“Secondly, customs controls of some sort will be introduced as the UK will leave the EU internal market. Operators need to encourage shippers and consignees to start improving paperwork now and aim to get international road haulage paperwork (description of goods on CMR notes) up to a standard that would be used to ship to the Far East.”
