Freight firms urged to join migrant scheme

[ January 26, 2016   //   ]

The Freight Transport Association (FTA) is encouraging all freight operators to join the Civil Penalty Accreditation Scheme to help protect against fines should illegal migrants be found on-board their trucks. 

Introduced by Border Force in 2015, the Scheme reduces haulage companies’ risk of receiving fines by making sure they have effective systems in place to reduce the possibility of clandestines hiding in their vehicles. 

Border Force publishes a full list of accredited hauliers of the Civil Penalty Accreditation Scheme on its website:
