The Freight Transport Association (FTA) has welcomed the Government’s No Deal Brexit notices on aviation, road haulage and the export/import of food products.
“The publication of the government’s No Deal Notices (around road haulage, aviation and the export and import of foods products) was overdue and is therefore welcomed by FTA. These notices, while confirming what we already knew concerning the impact of a no-deal Brexit on freight transport and borders, will hopefully help traders and logistics companies prepare for the worst case scenario.”
“They demonstrate that contingency agreements are needed to at least protect basic transport connectivity between the UK and the EU. FTA recognises the Government’s efforts to secure such agreements, either with the EU or with member states bi-laterally, and calls on EU-27 leaders and the European Commission to recognise the need for these contingency measures for freight transport, a sector which supports the entire economy,” FTA’s Pauline Bastidon, commented.
