Find out what Brexit means for road transport sector

Brexit

The FTA's James Hookham is to identify key 'crunch issues' for British logistics as the country prepares to leave the European Single Market at Commercial Fleet Van and Truck event.

At the event, on September 21, Hookham will put key issues under the microscope.

Hookham said: “Businesses across the UK are asking ‘what are the implications of Brexit for my transport operations and my supply chains?’  FTA has compiled an ABC list of issues that will be its priorities as the negotiations get under way.

“The fact is that virtually nothing changes for freight transport operations until the government gives formal notice to leave the EU and the exit negotiations start.  These will be incredibly complex and FTA’s job will be to lead for logistics and make sure the government keeps the nation’s supply chains efficient and competitive in whatever deal is agreed.”

Fleet operators can register for their free place at Commercial Fleet Van & Truck, taking place on the 20-21 September at Millbrook Proving Ground, by visiting www.commercialfleetvanandtruck.co.uk.

The two day event, which replaces the Commercial Fleet Summit, now consists of an enhanced exhibition area, interactive best practice sessions, main stage plenary theatre, unrivalled networking opportunities and the chance to compare and evaluate commercial vehicle options.
