Services for EU-bound HGVs at the Manston Airport site are being suspended in what Kent Police are hailing as a first step towards a return to “business as usual” on the county’s roads following the end of the Brexit transition. From next Sunday (21 March) freight heading for the Port of Dover will no longer be directed to attend the DfT site at the airfield. In addition the site will no longer offer Covid-19 tests or customs checks for hauliers. […]
Expiration dates for the Safe Loading Pass Scheme (SLPS) have been extended until 25 July in order to help hauliers continue to run smoothly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Transport for London (TfL) has told motortransport.co.uk a postponement to the Direct Vision Standard is being kept under consideration as concerns grow that manufacturers will struggle to fulfil vehicle orders.
Solicitors Smith Bowyer Clarke (SBC) said it was currently dealing with 10 cases per week where hauliers were seeking legal advice after receiving fines for having stowaways inside their vehicles.
