Concerns continue to grow about logistics when transition period ends

Felixstowe, UK: A UK international haulier has warned that there will be either be very long queues at ports after the Brexit transition period or that European companies will avoid coming to the UK after Christmas to avoid the much-anticipated disruption.

Jon Swallow, a director at Jordan Freight, told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, said: “If you’re going to have a deal, which we still don’t know then you need an implementation phase. And if there’s a no deal then we should have some breathing space to trial some of these (IT) systems because I can’t see how they’re possibly going to work. As it is you’re going to have two different possible scenarios – either very, very long queues or no-one’s going to come here and the shelves will be bare. That is the only two options there are.”

Jordan Freight is providing feedback on the new systems that hauliers will need to access. However, Swallow stressed that time is running out to trial the systems.

“It needn’t have been like this, they have left it till the last minute so no-one’s been able to trial it.”
