Responding to the Public Accounts Committee’s report on the DfT’s implementation of Brexit, RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett said: “This report confirms what so many members have told us. Information has been patchy, often unhelpful, confusing and generally too little, too late.
“This has left hauliers at the sharp end of a bad Brexit outcome, struggling to keep the supply chain operating and their firms in business.”
The RHA urges hauliers who operate internationally to plan ahead for a no-deal Brexit and apply now for annual ECMT permits. The deadline is 21 December.
