Chiltern fears Brexit delays will get worse with new checks on EU exporters

Peterborough, UK: Chiltern Distribution is concerned that delays associated with the Brexit changes are still happening – 10 weeks after the end of the transition period.

According to an article in the Financial Times, Chiltern Distribution’s managing director Paul Jackson says that one load of fruit was delayed at the Spanish border for six hours earlier this month.

The problem turned out to that a new trailer transporting the fruit could not be matched on the computer system. Overall, Chiltern is experiencing delays of up to seven hours at the border while paperwork is checked and processed.

Jackson fears that the delays will only get worse when the UK finally introduces checks on EU exporters, The UK government has just announced that it has delayed full border checks by another six months – the move means the first checks on imports coming into the UK will not start until October, with full border controls not being carried out until 1 January 2022, a full year after the UK left the EU.
