Logistics UK, has given a tacit approval to the government’s new Border Target Operating Model, but warned that the “devil will be in the detail.”
Nichola Mallon, Head of Trade at Logistics UK said: “Our members share the government’s ambition to create the most effective border in the world, which facilitates trade to and from the EU. However, as always, the devil will be in the detail in the new proposals, and it is vital that the government and business continue to test the model to ensure it is fit for purpose.
“Business will need as much time as possible to prepare for a new trading regime and Logistics UK will be keeping dialogue open with the Cabinet Office and HMRC during the consultation period to provide constructive feedback and shape the final outcome. Our members will be studying the proposals closely over the next six weeks to ensure the plans will enable logistics businesses to deliver for customers and the UK economy as a whole.”
