Engagement with haulage members on Windsor Framework issues

On 13 May, HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC), HM Treasury officials, and the Trader Support Service travelled to Belfast to meet with a group of our Northern Ireland members to work through data challenges facing hauliers under the Windsor Framework.

Under this newly established Hauliers Technical Discussion Group, there were three fact finding sessions to explore the data shares between: the GB selling business and the haulier; the sharing of information between multiple hauliers (ie, where the GB pallet network is used); and the haulier and the NI receiving business.

Logistics UK has met with the Windsor Framework Taskforce and HMRC on multiple occasions and continually raised concerns about the level of burden being placed on hauliers to provide timely and accurate data which is not always available and the need to identify, where possible, ways in which government can help ease these burdens.

In response, the Windsor Framework Taskforce has set up this new forum made up of HMRC, Treasury, the Trader Support Service (TSS), Logistics UK, Road Haulage Association and a number of their members to:

• Work collaboratively between government, the TSS and industry to understand how information flows through the supply chain for goods moving from GB to Northern Ireland.

• Understand particular pain points and common errors to minimise these, ensuring a smooth route for hauliers to move goods into Northern Ireland.

Logistics UK will continue to represent members and seek solutions where possible to ease the burden and keep trade flowing.
