International Haulage Permits – Post-Brexit

Added: 23 October 2018

The Government has outlined the rules that will apply for issuing international road haulage permits post Brexit.  Outlined in a consultation response issued by DfT, these rules may apply in both a deal or no-deal situation.

The Road Haulage Association notes that there are many gaps in our knowledge, as no significant progress has been made regarding road haulage post Brexit.  UK operators will not know for some months if they will need permits to move goods to, or through the EU.

“The ability of UK haulage operators to move goods to, from and through the EU (and vice versa), is essential for the people and businesses of both the UK and EU,” RHA Chief Executive Richard Burnett said.  Last month’s ‘quiet announcement’ still leaves us with many unanswered questions and highlights how far things still need to progress.

“We understand the Government wants a comprehensive deal without quota limits.  We would support that, and we hope it will be successful.  Any system that limits access by quota is unacceptable.

“We still don't know if the UK will require EU hauliers to obtain reciprocal permits to enter the UK, or if the UK will allow EU operators to enter the UK using their current community licences.  Until we see the guidance on the criteria and allocation process for permits operators will remain in the dark.  Multiple fees for crossing different EU States are also a great concern.  We will continue to work with Government and others across the EU to find practical, simple and workable solutions.”
