Freight Forwarders Will Continue to Face Big Challenges

Tags: ,


The British International Freight Association (BIFA), the trade association for United Kingdom (UK) freight forwarders, says that 2016 will see its members continuing to face numerous challenges. Some of them will be caused by legislative changes and government policy rather than economic issues.

Director General Robert Keen said, “From a legislative perspective, two major impacts on the freight forwarding landscape in 2016 will result from the implementation of the Union Customs Code, and the amendment to Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) which requires the verification of gross mass of shipping containers before loading.

“There is still significant confusion about the implications of both legislative changes, and BIFA will continue to hold events to brief members and others to help them manage the change in processes.”

2015 was dominated by dreadful events at the Channel Tunnel, which had a significant impact on freight forwarders who use the crossing for their European overland haulage operations.
