If the UK leaves the EU without a deal then the repercussions for Europe’s supply chain will be a disaster, says the Road Haulage Association.
The RHA is disappointed that despite its pleas for Brexit clarity, none has been forthcoming, and today’s announcements present nothing new.

If that’s not going to be the case, then a no-deal Brexit will be little more than a nail in the coffin of the industry responsible for moving 98 per cent of the UK economy.
