The Freight Transport Association (FTA) is offering a series of free workshops to help haulage companies prepare for a no-deal Brexit.

The half-day workshops will run throughout the end of September and the whole of October ahead of the 31 October deadline for the UK to leave the EU.

A no-deal Brexit will bring new border procedures and haulier responsibilities into immediate effect. The FTA’s Brexit Preparation Workshops for Haulage Companies will help hauliers understand the new road haulage procedures, documentation requirements and responsibilities as well as provide all the information they need to keep their EU-UK operations running as smoothly as possible.

Over 100 workshops will take place before the deadline. They will cover vital considerations such as new border procedures and haulier responsibilities, and an overview of documents for goods vehicles and trailers.

The course will teach attendees to understand the impact of different Brexit scenarios will have on road freight movements between the UK and the EU.

They will also to able to describe the intended border procedures and responsibilities of hauliers involved in freight movements to and from the EU, in the event of a no-deal Brexit, as well as changing documentation and checklist requirements for goods vehicle operators, drivers and trailers.
