BIFA WILL ASSIST GOVERNMENT ON BREXIT DISCUSSIONS

%2017 %09 %22

On the day that UK Prime Minister, Theresa May invokes Article 50 and begin negotiations for Britain’s exit from the European Union, the trade body that represents the UK's freight forwarding companies says it is still too soon to make speculative statements with so many unknowns.
Robert Keen, Director General of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) says: “In the run up to the UK’s eventual exit we will be working with Government to try and ensure that the movement of the UK’s visible import and export trade does not become overburdened by over complicated trade procedures.
“Clearly there are significant areas of concern for our members, which are responsible for much of the physical movement of that trade, over the eventual outcome, including the physical infrastructure, trade arrangements and Customs practices that will be reviewed as part of the Brexit negotiations.
“I have already gone on the record to warn about the huge number of pundits offering solutions when nobody really knows what is likely to happen in reality.
“BIFA's focus now will be presenting the views of our members to the various government departments that we deal with, as well as working with organisations such as the Confederation of British Industry and International Chamber of Commerce to make sure that all parties negotiating the post-Brexit landscape are fully aware of the potential challenges for which they will need to find solutions.”
