Brexit preparation in Calais

News of the 05/09/2019

The probability of a hard Brexit is more and more likely, which is why Calais is doing a dress rehearsal for truck flow management.

Since last August 30 and for a month, blank tests will be done for the referral of trucks. Minister Gérald Darmanin presented the measures taken, including the recruitment of 700 additional customs officers and the implementation of new technological devices for automated plate reading and adapted switching.

These tests are intended to reassure economic players on both sides of the Channel about the fluidity of transport on the new border.
