IRU calls for UK to remain in NCTS

[ May 24, 2018   //   ]

The International Road Transport Union (IRU) has called for the UK to remain a member of the New Computerised Transit System (NCTS) and use other trade facilitation systems such as TIR, after Brexit. It also called for road transport operators established in either the EU or UK to continue to be able to conduct international road transport, provided they meet financial standing, professional competence and good repute criteria.
Matthias Maedge, who leads IRU’s work in the EU, said: “The road transport industry must have clarity on the post-Brexit framework to support proper business planning. Good customs solutions are key, we cannot afford to have long queues at borders and need to work with NCTS and eTIR to facilitate transit.”
