We’re approaching the end of the Transition Period and there will be important changes to border and traffic management arrangements. The UK Government is working hard to make sure commercial drivers and hauliers are prepared for these changes at the end of the year.
A haulier handbook will shortly be available in English and 14 different languages, acting as a one-stop-shop forUKand EU hauliers, providing them with key information and advice. Hauliers are also now able to visit 5 pilot ‘Information and Advice Sites’, with a further 40 due to open 16th November, at key strategic locations across theUK. We are offering in-person assistance on how to apply for the documents needed to keep drivers moving to, from and through the EU.
