Further Delays To Brexit Border Checks

RESPONDING to news that Boris Johnson is considering a further delay to the introduction of import checks on goods arriving from the EU, scheduled to be introduced in July 2022,

Logistics UK is concerned that businesses will be unsettled by the ongoing uncertainty: “Despite the ongoing pressures on supply chains caused by the war in Ukraine, Russian sanctions and the Covid-19 pandemic, logistics businesses need the certainty for planning which a deadline provides.

“After three false starts for the introduction of import controls from the EU, it is time for government to make a clear commitment to a deadline and ensure the necessary facilities, staff and processes are in place and ready to cope with the volume and patterns of trade by that deadline,” said a Logistics UK spokesperson.
