As part of HM Government’s campaign to assist and inform hauliers of the changes regarding the movement of goods between the EU and UK, The Department for Transport participated at key trade exhibitions for the Haulage industry across Europe.
September was a busy month with stands at SITL, France; Transport 2021, Denmark and Transport Compleet, The Netherlands. With confidence in attending live events returning, organisers reported stronger than expected visitor numbers. Bilingual stand staff were able to assist delegates by demonstrating how to access relevant information and resources including the Live Chat team and language specific support.
November was another key month for the Haulier Outreach Programme with the DfT taking a stand at Translogistica, Poland; IFTL, Czech Republic and Logistics & Automation, Spain. The information given via the digital platform and Haulier Handbook, was extremely well received by delegates as the resources helped them understand and navigate the new rules and regulations for transporting goods to and from the UK.
