TT Club bolsters Brexit guidance for freight supply chain

TT Club has launched a Brexit guidance resource for the freight supply chain to help address the many and complex challenges relating to Brexit, and relevant to drivers, haulage companies, freight forwarders, customs agencies, logistics operators and port operators in both and UK and the EU.

After the end of the transition period on 31st December 2020, import and export declarations will be required, regardless of whether a trade deal is agreed between the UK and the EU.

“As a result, there will be significant changes to the current processes of moving goods between the UK and the EU. However, Northern Ireland will be subject to a different regime under the NI Protocol,” said Mike Yarwood, managing director, loss prevention at TT. “All stakeholders involved in the cross-border movement of goods will need to be aware of the changes, make appropriate decisions and adjust systems and processes at the earliest opportunity to avoid unnecessary disruption.”

Until such time that there is definitive guidance on customs procedures, trade agreements and solutions to potential transport disruption, however, the organisation says that no supply chain stakeholder will have the knowledge to prepare themselves entirely.
