Transport Committee

Freight and Brexit inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

The deadline for written evidence submissions was Friday 8 June 2018. The inquiry is now closed. 

Scope of the inquiry

The Transport Committee launches an inquiry to examine the potential effects of Brexit on UK freight operations and assess the preparatory steps operators, their customers and the Government need to take.

The Committee is particularly interested to receive written evidence addressing the following:

  • the scale and nature of the challenges and opportunities Brexit presents to UK freight companies and their customers;
  • the adequacy of steps being taken by freight companies, their representatives bodies, their customers and the Government in preparation for the challenges and opportunities of Brexit;
  • mode and/or sector-specific requirements for additional Government funding, or other changes to Government funding plans, particularly in relation to transport infrastructure, to support the needs of freight; and
  • any new arrangements needed for the licencing, regulation and training of operators and workers in the freight sector after Brexit (including the adequacy of measures set out in the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill).
