The Road Haulage Association says the government still faces a huge challenge to prepare business in time for a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.

The warning comes as the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sajid Javid pledged ‘no-deal’ preparation funding and plans for additional staff at the border.

RHA chief executive, Richard Burnett said that action from the Government is welcome but warned that it’ll be a tall order to get businesses ready and new border staff recruited and trained in time for 31 October.

“This is big picture and what we badly need is detail. We need a complete, practical how-to guide to ensure traders know what they have to do to get across the borders after Brexit.”
