The decision to delay new border controls for EU goods imported into the UK has made business for shellfish hauliers much harder, according to an Aberdeen operator.
Allan Miller, owner of AM Shellfish, said it was now in the process of setting up a company in Spain in an attempt to get around the “absolutely crazy” paperwork and expense it was experiencing.
Miller, who runs three artics out of an Inverurie operating centre, said in January that the government’s post-Brexit agreement with the EU was a shambles. He also took part in the 50-truck demonstration on 18 January.
He said the situation had now deteriorated further: “It’s costing me a fortune,” he said.
