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 is now available in English and will soon be available in 14 different languages, acting as a one-stop-shop for UK and EU hauliers, providing them with key information and advice. Hauliers are also able to visit 45 ‘Information and Advice Sites’, at key strategic locations across the UK. We are offering in-person assistance on how to apply for the documents needed to keep drivers moving to, from and through the EU.
