The Freight Transport Association exhorts the British politicians to reach an agreement on the Brexit with the EU

Hookham: the problems that "deal" it would not cause to the enterprises would be catastrophic

After the ballot last night to the Palace of Westminster to London of the parliamentarians of the House of Commons, that they have rejected the agreement tightened with the EU from the government guided by Theresa May for the escape of the United Kingdom from the European Union, also the Freight Transport Association (FTA), the association that represents the British enterprises of the field of the logistics, it has manifested worry and it has sped up the politicians "to assume a decision that gives support to the activities of the nation, pain the risk to put in danger the commercial platform and the economy of the United Kingdom".

"A lacked agreement on the Brexit - the managing director of the FTA, James Hookham has explained - would be very harmful for the commerce, the transactions and Great Britain. Without a clear solution for that it will happen after, the risk of a lacked agreement is increased in meaningful way and the problems that this would cause to the enterprises, than now do not have practically time in order to prepare themselves, would be catastrophic for the supply chain of the United Kingdom, on which all we confide".

"Exactly two years ago, in the speech to Lancaster House - Hookham has remembered - mrs. May has promised that the freedom of commercial exchanges would be safeguarded, independently from the outcome of it negotiate with the EU: this promise has not been realized. A lacked agreement would increase the delays to the frontiers of the Country, would increase the bureaucracy and the costs for the logistic enterprises that already operate with narrow margins, would limit the access to the transports towards the EU and would reduce for operators logistic force job available. All problematic aspects taken one to one. All together, instead, would constitute a perfect storm that could cause incalculable damages to the enterprises and the people in all the Country, not only to those which operate directly with the EU".

Hookham has emphasized that the logistics is a field to the center of the economy of the United Kingdom: the directly involved companies or employee in important way from the logistics, as the sale by piece and the production, constitute 22% of all the societies of the United Kingdom and employ a third party of the force job of the nation. "As field - it has remembered - in the past couple of years the logistics has asked the government clarifications on the main areas for exchange. Issues as the way in which they must be made the customs declarations and as they must be collected rates, the rights of access for the trailer and for staff of the United Kingdom and as the access must be guaranteed to the vehicles can seem secondary to some, but in reality have an enormous impact on the way in which the goods and the services they are able to freely flow between the United Kingdom and its greater commercial partner".

"The logistics - it has continued Hookham - does not have and it will not have to be dealt as the "scapegoat" of the politicians who have in the past couple of years not taken into consideration the complexity of the supply chain. The operators of all the dimensions are always ready to make the possible one in order to satisfy the customers, but without to know the parameters of the market in which they are and in which they will work, the planning is returned almost impossible".

"A lacked agreement on the Brexit - it has concluded the managing director of the FTA - lascerebbe the logistic operators to having to tackle to a greater bureaucracy, to restrictions to the access at the market and the characterized staff, to greater delays and laborious increasing costs and would put to risk the place of work of British that takes care of the transport of the goods. Nobody has voted in favor of this and the FTA exhorts the government newly to reach an agreement with the EU that can allow that goods and services circulate practically without obstacles. This is how much promised two years ago and this is that the field expects".
