Logistics UK’s response to the EU Entry/Exit and the UK Border consultation 


Logistics UK has responded to the European Scrutiny Committee’s inquiry into the EU Entry/Exit System and its potential consequences for the UK’s border.

The EU’s proposed Entry/Exit System (EES) will replace manual passport stamping with an automated IT system, to record when travellers enter and exit the Schengen Area.  

“Logistics UK is concerned that EES in its current form, if implemented, will cause friction, disruption and delays for UK and EU freight utilising gateways with juxtaposed borders with significant negative consequences for logistics operators, supply chains and UK and EU economies,” says Josh Fenton, Policy Manager – Trade, Customs and Borders at Logistics UK. 

“Juxtaposed borders are a unique arrangement that warrant a unique solution. The UK and EU, most recently via the Windsor Framework Agreement, have shown how constructive partnership working can result in pragmatic, bespoke solutions for unique circumstances. 

“As such, Logistics UK is keen to see a similar outcome for juxtaposed borders on UK soil given the mutual benefits to be gained by UK and EU traders and both economies.” 

Logistics UK’s full submission to the consultation can be found here.
