Logistics UK comment on government's "Time is running out" campaign
Monday 19 October 2020
ELIZABETH DE JONG, DIRECTOR OF POLICY AT LOGISTICS UK, COMMENTS:
“Logistics UK has been urging its members for some time to ensure that they and their customers prepare as much as possible for the new trading conditions the industry will face at the end of the Brexit transition period. A brand-new supply chain in border readiness documents will need to work effectively from day one if disruption is to be avoided.
“Logistics UK has been working with government on a series of joint metrics to assess preparedness, as businesses need government to be ready, if they are to be ready. Time is of the essence, so Logistics UK has written to Michael Gove to urge the work be accelerated, so that business and industry can be confident trade will remain as frictionless as possible from 1 January 2021.”
