Air Partner Predicts Surge in Air Freight Due to New Customs Protocols for Trucks Post-Brexit

Air Partner, the global aviation services group and major air freight broker in the UK, is preparing for a possible influx of air freight requests as the country approaches the end of its transition period out of the European Union.

While at present many goods entering the UK are transported by truck into Kent via the port of Dover or the Channel Tunnel, following the end of the Brexit transition period on 31 December these trucks will be subject to additional customs protocols when entering Kent. This has prompted warnings of potential queues up to 7,000 vehicles-long, which would pose significant challenges to business’s supply chains.
