With the UK and EU yet to reach an agreement on their future trading relationship, at least at the time of writing, it is vital that vehicle goods operators are as prepared as possible for a No-Deal Brexit, even if MPs have backed a bill aimed at blocking a no-deal Brexit on 31st October. According to the bill, if Boris Johnson fails to secure an agreement with Brussels by 19th October, he will be forced to ask for another delay.
To guide hauliers through this challenging time, FTA UK has launched a series of free half-day workshops. The first ones took place in September but the events are continuing until the 31st October deadline.
In the event of a No-Deal Brexit, new border procedures and haulier responsibilities will come into effect immediately. Hauliers must ensure they fully understand the new road haulage procedures, documentation requirements and responsibilities that will arise after 31 October 2019; otherwise they risk their operations coming to a standstill.
The workshops will cover the following topics:
- Brexit update.
- Overview of No-Deal Brexit impact on international haulage.
- New border procedures and haulier responsibilities to maintain business continuity.
- Practical considerations for a No-Deal Brexit and a step-by-step guide for hauliers to prepare.
- Overview of new documentation requirements for goods vehicle operators.
- Overview of documentation for goods vehicle drivers.
- Overview of documents for goods vehicles and trailers.
- Other haulage business no-deal planning considerations.
- End to end process.
You can checkout the extended programme of the workshops on the FTA website, where you can also book your seat.
