Keep borders free flowing, RHA tells Johnson

The Road Haulage Association has called on Boris Johnson, who has just become prime minister, to ensure that borders between the UK and EU remain free flowing after Brexit.

Chief executive Richard Burnett said: “It’s vital for UK businesses that Mr Johnson ensures that firms can continue to move goods freely across our borders once we leave the EU.”

He said that businesses are frustrated with a lack of clarity from the government on what’s expected of them and how new systems will work.

“We urge the prime minister to ensure that his government puts the right systems in place and gives firms the support they need to continue transporting freight efficiently.”
