Logistics UK chief discusses Brexit trade arrangements with EU Transition Minister


David Wells, Chief Executive of Logistics UK, met with EU Transition Minister, Rachel Maclean, last week (3 December 2020) to discuss the upcoming end of the Brexit transition period.

Their meeting took place at the new Information and Advice Site at Hopwood Service Station. As previously reported in Logistics Magazine, there are 45 of these sites located at motorway service stations and truck stops across the UK, all of which are designed to offer drivers of freight vehicles in-person advice on Brexit preparations. 

“With just a few weeks to go until the end of the Transition Period, the meeting was a good opportunity to engage with the minister again and discuss our concerns around government and industry preparedness,” Wells said.

“Deal or no deal, any future trading arrangement with the EU will require much preparation by freight companies and their customers. Logistics UK is urging businesses involved in UK-EU supply chains to engage with the Information and Advice Sites to help them be as ready as they can. Information, including the Hauliers’ Handbook, is now available in many languages, so it is vital that each company in any supply chain has accessed the available information.”
