Wednesday’s Strike To Impact Customs, Evolution Forwarding

BIFA (The British International Freight Association) have advised their members that Wednesday’s civil service strike is expected to impact, and potentially delay, customs procedures at UK airports and ports.

Civil service workers are due to strike on Wednesday, 1st February, with around 100,000 employees taking part. HMRC staff are not expected to be directly involved, although Border Force are. 

HMRC are advising that the strike is likely to impact the movement of goods in and out of UK ports and airports, in addition to UK Border controls in France. Any disruption will likely extend into 2 February as staffing levels return to normal and this also applies to travel through the UK’s airports and passenger terminals.
