Policy wins – March 2022

Wins recently achieved by the Logistics UK policy team.


Logistics UK held discussions with DVSA to propose solutions to the slow appeals processes for lorry, trailer and bus/coach MOT results. As a result, DVSA introduced an improved appeals process which involves a quick review of an annual test decision and consistent service to customers. The previous appeals process was inefficient and deterred operators from making appeals and taking vehicles off the road for weeks at a time. This quicker and simpler process advocated by Logistics UK came into force on 28 February 2022. 


Logistics UK called for a range of measures to improve and clarify private car park operations in last year’s Code of Practice for Private Parking consultation, the majority of which were adopted in the final version of the Code. These included a single independent appeals process, clearer understanding and fairness of signage and charges, and denial of access to DVLA vehicle keeper data for parking operators who do not adhere to the rules set out in the Code.   


In February, Logistics UK successfully facilitated a meeting between members and 10 EU officials in Belfast, which involved direct discussions with the NI Brexit Business Working Group and retailers, wholesalers and parcel operators. In this in-person visit, members outlined procedures for sending parcels from GB to NI and put forward key asks on potential mitigations on any UK-EU deal on the NI Protocol.
