1 in 10 hauliers recruiting post-Brexit

Around one in ten hauliers in the UK have increased recruitment directly because of Brexit, according to the UK Hauliers Brexit Transition Survey by Haulage Exchange.

The haulage loads platform asked employees from 32 UK-based haulage companies how Brexit has impacted their business.

Some 94% of hauliers said new border restrictions have negatively affected their ability to do business, while 66% are concerned about the increased admin required in preparation to cross the border.

Sam Wilkinson, chief revenue officer at Transport Exchange Group, said: “With the Brexit transition period over, our focus is to ensure users of our market-leading Freight Exchange platforms, Courier Exchange and Haulage Exchange, can continue to carry goods to and from the EU without disruption.

“According to our survey, delays at ports and paperwork are front of mind for carriers. To ensure they can be prepared and avoid delays we are working with industry experts to provide educational content that will be signposted directly from within our platform.”

He added: “We expect that freight will continue to move and Transport Exchange Group will continue to lead the way for UK Freight Exchange platforms.”
