Logistics UK calls for certainty as MPs debate Retained EU Law bill

London, UK: Logistics UK has called for certainty for business as MPs debate the Retained EU Law bill in the House of Commons today.

Logistics UK’s policy director, Kate Jennings, said: “Our members need certainty over the terms under which they trade, and while the government’s recent changes to the Retained EU Law Bill provide some reassurance they aren’t facing a regulatory cliff edge, it remains vital that government confirms the scope and scale of the legislation that is yet to be amended, and the timescales under which changes are to be made.

“The logistics sector is flexible and adaptable but cannot keep making last minute changes to trading arrangements if the supply chain is to be protected – business needs a clear understanding of what is to be reformed and by when, to keep the UK trading effectively.”

With decarbonisation, Brexit, new technology and other disruptive forces driving change in the way goods move across borders and through the supply chain, logistics has never been more important to UK plc, Logistics UK said.
