Brexit is coming, and it’s clear that the government, which has been pushing Brexit along, has chosen not to invest or prioritize systems for logistics. The logistics community will be forced into dealing with a tangle of poorly understood rules and policies, documentation requirements and restrictions, that no one has bothered to foresee as a complete package. Logistics firms particularly trucking firms (though all sectors have their issues) hve complained loudly. Now it’s for a long time.
There has been ample warning for the government of the problems, despite a bit of uncertainty about whether and exactly how Brexit would happen. But The government all along has known that there would need to be massive change. They just have not bothered to assess and remedy the defects by making double sure that processes were in place and well understood, nor did they factor logistics, the ‘point person’ affected by Brexit, into the negotiations or the processes.
This article shows the laughable government response in Britain to logistics firms’ complaints. In a classic Trumpian moment, they blame the folks who are complaining.
It’s as though we were to blame the Chinese Communist party for coronavirus…
Oh, I think someone did that just recently.
