Freight industry fears security check chaos under no-deal Brexit
Transport body warns UK lorries would need counter-terrorism safety certificates
The freight industry has warned of the potential for a fresh Brexit ferry fiasco after it emerged all British truckers will be required to have counter-terrorism safety security certificates to enter the European Union in the event of no deal.
The EU rule was introduced after the 9/11 attack on New York’s twin towers but only applies to third country freight entering the EU.
Had another example yesterday of a company that applied for 60 and got 14… the EU contingency measure – if & when approved, will hopefully remove the need for permits in certain cases, but companies that rely on cross trade a lot will need permits anyway
