vehicle operators will have unrestricted access to the Republic of Ireland (ROI) in the event of a no-deal Brexit is a promising step forward, according to the Freight Transport Association (FTA), the business organisation which represents the logistics industry, but the lack of clarity on permits for British operators must be addressed to keep trade flowing freely to ROI. FTA was originally advised NI


would only be eligible for approximately 60 ECMT (European Conference of Ministers of Transport) commercial vehicle permits per year, but as Seamus

Leheny, FTA’s Northern Ireland policy manager explains, this would constitute a massive shortfall: “When you consider more than 4,000 goods vehicles cross the border between NI and ROI daily, the allowance of 60 vehicle permits per year would have inoperably damaged the transport industry and in turn, the businesses who rely on these imported goods and services to operate. “Thankfully, the NI Department


for Infrastructure has confirmed all operators with a NI licence will not be required to obtain an ECMT permit to travel to ROI. While FTA welcome this special status for businesses in Northern Ireland – it will help maintain vital cross border, all-island supply chains in


the event of a no-deal Brexit – the ideal scenario would be a UK- wide application.” Those with a British operator’s


license will have to apply for an ECMT permit if they plan to drive in the Republic of Ireland, or elsewhere in the EU, from 29 March 2019. Leheny continues: “British operators will only have access to 1,224 permits per year, which is painfully short of the required total. Without frictionless movement between the UK and EU-27 countries, we can expect to see severe delays which will threaten our complex supply chain. It’s promising to see such progress has made been in NI in regard to vehicle permits, but this must be applied across the UK.”


Supply Chain Conference and Exhibition 2019, Colin Murphy, exhibition organiser and publisher said: “This years event aims to be bigger and better than ever. With over 3,000 attendees and an emphasis on ecosystems in industrial manufacturing the events will provide unique insights into technology and innovation, an area that is rapidly developing as the world becomes more environmentally conscious.”
