Walking Floor transport outside the EU
Joost Blom, manager Walking Floor: ‘As the United Kingdom is no longer in the EU, Walking Floor transportation to and from the UK has now become an even more specialised form of transport. We as Farm Trans have fully prepared ourselves for Brexit and therefore we are an expert in this specialism and are capable in serving our customers throughout the whole process.’
Extra documentation outside the EU
From 1 January 2021 additional information is needed about freights because the UK has left the EU and various customs requirements must be met. It is also required to provide shipping information beforehand, such as dispatch notes, cargo lists and product codes. ‘For customers this means that we load the product quicker and ask for this shipping information beforehand and forward these data to various chain partners.’
