The government has introduced the Haulage Permits and Trailer Registration Bill as part of its preparations to ensure the UK can deliver a smooth and orderly Brexit, as we move from our current membership of the EU to our future partnership.
The UK’s overall aim in the negotiations with the EU is to maintain and develop the existing liberalised access for commercial haulage, as part of the wider future partnership.
The bill will allow us to operate a permit scheme for international road haulage for whichever journeys may require permits and introduce a trailer registration scheme to allow UK trailers to be used freely internationally.
We are making proposals:
- on how a haulage permits scheme should operate in the future
- for which trailers will require registration
- on how a trailer registration scheme will operate
