Brexit: RHA asks for urgent meeting with Calais port head

Peterborough, UK: The Road Haulage Association is hoping for an urgent meeting with the president of Port Boulogne Calais, Jean-Marc Puissesseau following remarks he made that the British authorities are Brexit ready.

RHA chief executive Richard Burnett said. “From the meetings we have had it is clear that they are not.”

“Since day one we have been pressing Government for clarity as regards future border crossing procedures and we have conveyed our concerns about the future to on many occasions.”

He added: “If everybody turns up in Calais with the right documents there will be no problems but today with only 80 days until we leave the EU, we still cannot establish what is needed and what qualifies as ‘lorry ready’. It’s an information abyss.”

“Until we get the clarity that is so desperately needed, optimism is in very short supply. We are hoping for an urgent meeting with Monsieur Puissesseau to explain this and voice our concerns.”
