It’s correct, there are major problems with both import and export documentation and customs. Some hauliers are now refusing to even pick loads up from customers until all documentation has been submitted to them which, for a number of reasons, is difficult, even impossible in some circumstances.
Shipping Agents are overwhelmed, the HMRC system is overloaded, close to overwhelmed. Customers are playing holy fuck. My wife is the Logistics Operations Manager for the U.K. division of a world-wide petro-chemical company with numerous processing plants in the EU, and they have managed to get three out of around forty shipments across since the 4th January. She’s tearing her hair out, and says that Leave-voters should all be lined up against a wall and machine-gunned.
The dozy buggers didn’t put any of this shit on their big red f***ing bus, did they? All we heard about was ‘sunlit uplands’, ‘take are cuntry back’, and blue passports.
