    No doubt deliveries will be affected from the ports.

    Oh really, why do you think that?  The port officials all say they are fully prepared for Brexit.

    ‘Independent’ article, based on the the leaked ‘Operation Yellowhammer’ dossier:  “Government maintains that there would be long queues at the port of Dover because of the importance of the Channel crossing, but a “low risk” of disruption at other ports.

    “But a Department for Transport paper leaked to the Financial Times suggests the only reason for that is that the majority of lorries would not be allowed to enter.

    “The document predicts that at the ports of Holyhead, Liverpool, Portsmouth and Heysham, more than two-thirds of vehicles would not have the proper documentation and would therefore be turned away instantly. At Dover, tailbacks would stretch nearly 100 miles along the motorway because of increased checks on hauliers.”

    “The Prime Minister’s spokesman said: “We have implemented a major campaign to ensure that hauliers can take action to get ready and that they’re able to operate so that trade can continue to move as freely as possible between the UK and Europe after Brexit. If hauliers have the correct documentation, we’re confident that there will be only minimal disruption at the border.” ”

    *****

    In other words, any delays will be solely due to the incompetence of the Hauliers and nothing to do with Brexit.

    I put this on the Brexit Thread in the Off Topic Forum (we have now opened the Forum to All) if businesses do their paper work there are no excuses for delays especially for the car industry that already have transport infrastructure in place.

    And of course, imported cars don’t arrive by road vehicle, they come on specialist ships.

    The exact topic was on the news yesterday.

    The government has implement several levels of bureaucracy for import checks by the border agency and they said any company bringing thing in needs to register to be able to import anything but only a small fraction of companies have bothered.

    The customs guy the process will involve 3 or 4 processes that currently dont exist but unregistered companies will have issues from the outset.

    An interviewed business owner said they cant register as the rules and information is too expansive for staff to manage at such short notice.

    To be fair, I’ve just ploughed through the Gov.UK website “Prepare your Business or Organisation for Brexit” advice and it’s . . . lengthy.

    And complicated.

    In fact, I think said “Businesses or Organisations” are going to need Professional Help to make Heads or Tails of it all, and suspect a lot of the smaller ones will go under because of it – either because they can’t afford Professional Help; Can’t find Professional Help; or Don’t realise they’re going to need Professional Help until it’s too late.

    Great though they are, I really don’t think the Citizens Advice Bureau is going to be able to help much on this one.
