Walking Floor transport after Brexit
06 | 01 | 2021
On Sunday morning 3 January 2021, Farm Trans successfully executed its first post-Brexit offloading in the UK with Walking Floors.
Walking Floor transport outside EU
Joost Blom, Walking Floor manager, explains: ‘With the UK no longer part of the EU, Walking Floor transport to and from the UK has become even more of a speciality. As Farm Trans has prepared well for the Brexit, we have mastered this specialism and can assist our customers throughout the entire process.’
Additional documentation outside EU
From 1 January 2021, additional cargo information will be required because various customs requirements will have to be met after the UK’s exit. Shipping details such as notes of lading, freight lists and product codes should also be known earlier. ‘For customers, this means that we load the product earlier and request and transmit the shipment details to various supply chain partners earlier.’
Demand for Walking Floor transport towards UK grows
We notice that the demand of Walking Floor transport towards the UK is growing. As Farm Trans, we can carry out quick and targeted transport requests from customers as we have knowledge and access to all the required systems. This allows our customers to hand over full control to us. ‘Tailored to the desired lead time, we book a suitable crossing so that the customer’s shipment is delivered at the right time and place,’ Joost says.
