The traffic commissioners (TCs) have made operators aware of the help and advice available about new customs rules that came into effect at the beginning of January.
Anyone moving goods between Great Britain and the European Union through a goods vehicle movement service (GVMS) border location must now be registered to use the service, writes Chris Tindall.
Current arrangements will continue to apply to goods moving from the island of Ireland to GB, while discussions on the Northern Ireland Protocol are continuing.
The TCs said they were approached by HM Revenue & Customs to highlight the help available to them after becoming ‘aware of some common issues occurring when customers are creating goods movement references into GVMS, which are causing them delays at the border’.
