Preparing for a No-Deal
With the UK and EU yet to reach an agreement on their future trading relationship, it is vital that vehicle goods operators are as prepared as possible for a No-Deal Brexit. Hauliers must ensure they fully understand the new road haulage procedures, documentation requirements and responsibilities that will arise after 31 January 2020; otherwise they risk their operations coming to a standstill.
