Following the 2016 referendum, the UK officially began the process of leaving the European Union in March 2017. This was due to conclude with the UK leaving the EU on the 29th March 2019. This process has been extended and the current date for the UK’s withdrawal is the 31st October 2019.  With the situation around Brexit unclear, ‘A to Brexit’ has been set up by the Road Haulage Association to provide guidance to the haulage industry and the businesses that rely on it.

Parliament has twice voted against withdrawal agreements. The situation with future deals is unclear and likely to change over the coming weeks. ‘A to Brexit’ will reflect this.
