UK And EU Agree Trade Deal

ON CHRISTMAS EVE the United Kingdom and European Union (EU) agreed a post-Brexit deal, which provided equal access for hauliers based on both sides of the English Channel and allowed businesses to continue to trade without extra taxes put on goods.
For British hauliers, the trade deal represented a degree of continuity: access to Europe with revised cabotage rules in place coupled with full transit rights that allow lorry drivers to pass through multiple European countries to deliver and collect (for more go to page 16).
The Department for Transport (DfT) said: ‘Operators will continue to be able to move goods to, from and through each other’s territories with no permit requirements, and make additional movements within each other’s territories, with limits on the number of permitted movements.’
