UK to EU exports fell 68% since Brexit trade deal: hauliers

International members at the Road Haulage Association (RHA) presented data reflecting a 68% drop in exports from the United Kingdom to the European Union. This is after the Brexit transition period that expired at the end of 2020 disrupted trade.

However, the British government did not confirm the data and refuted that trade disruption at the border had been minimal since the U.K. completed its transitional exit from the EU last year after the two parties came up with a post-Brexit trade deal.

Since January this year, firms and hauliers have had to deal with the new trade setup, which includes new systems for businesses and officials in the British province of Northern Ireland.

Some companies have had a hard time dealing with new practices, declarations, and health certificates as the coronavirus pandemic also hits businesses.
