New haulier survey reveals mixed impact of Brexit

A significant proportion of haulage companies said they are seeing an increase in demand for business as a result of Brexit, a survey by Haulage Exchange has found.

More than one in seven (15%) said they had seen an increase in demand; however, 21% said they had lost business as a result of the UK leaving the EU.

The survey also found 9% of hauliers have increased employee numbers; 15% have had to make redundancies and 40% said so far nothing had changed.

The majority of respondents (94%) said they would be negatively impacted by the changes, with 75% claiming waiting times at the border would be the biggest problem.

Sam Wilkinson, chief revenue officer at Transport Exchange Group, said: “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.”
