Rules concerning the transport of goods into the EU have now changed, despite the entering into force of the new Trade and Co-operation Agreement between the UK and the EU. Further changes will be implemented more gradually until at least July 2025.

The new rules require  proper preparation without which there is  significant potential to cause delay and disruption, especially at Channel crossings.

The UK has implemented contingency plans to control traffic flows into Kent and other measures aimed at ensuring that all necessary documentation is completed before journeys commence.

In addition transport journeys may be subject to Covid checks and testing requirements.
