LIABILITY– The Company creating the GMR we understand will be responsible to UK Customs for all goods loaded to the vehicle and any Customs debt. The Company must ensure all goods have the appropriate Customs declarations in place before the driver boards the ferry/train.
If this is the case the driver is then liable for any duties or incorrect declarations . What fresh hell is this ?
As a driver all we should be responsible for it TRANSPORTING the goods . Not being responsible for guaranteeing the goods . This is a game changer . It’s not worth the risk
A GVMR number is not needed . Why are the government doing this to us ? WHY

Imagine being a driver or a company transporting goods from the EU to the U.K. and being held solely responsible for the goods on board..and responsible for any duties or vat on those goods . Would you risk carrying them ? I wouldn’t .. brexit 01/01/22 it’s coming #Brexit
Imagine being an EU haulier with 40 pallets of mixed consignments .. a few incorrect declarations and that’s it your stuffed . Your liable for any monies due . Goods and vehicle don’t leave .
Imagine if your carrying a high value consignment for a customer you haven’t worked for before .. and it’s been incorrectly declared . Bang - your liable . But you haven’t played any part in the customs process . How on earth should you know the correct value . It’s bonkers

I’m going to share my thoughts with you based on recent life experiences so I hope it makes sense , well you probably won’t understand but I’ll try ..
On 28th April 2019 I was minding my own business driving through France in the mountains when out of nowhere a biker hit me head on at around 100mph ..
Now - it wasn’t my fault I must stress , but it was one of those moments still that will live with me forever - even now when I go to sleep I get flashbacks .. Headaches etc

Today’s “tour de carnet” - ebbsfleet-Calais-chassio/como -weil am Rhein- Calais - ebbsfleet . Many many hours wasted in customs - spent the evening transferring a load to another vehicle and a delayed delivery through no fault of my own . Brexit benefits ImageImageImageImage

Johnsons “high skilled high wage” claim is just an acceptance of reality predicted by those who warned him of the consequences of brexit . He’s now so far down a rabbit hole he’s fantasising whilst giving people false hope when in reality we’re facing high inflation and bills
Are we going to start making hydrogen powered time machines ? Rockets to space maybe ? He couldn’t even build a bridge over the river Thames . Maybe technology has moved so far forwards now he can pay those high skilled workers to build it from U.K. made materials .
And at the same time maybe he can achieve his dream and build that tunnel to N.I using some kind of space rock mined by high skilled high wage workers sent up in a U.K. rocket that runs on unicorn gas

There’s a shortage of drivers across the EU . Nothing like what we’re seeing , but nonetheless-what’s happening here has prompted other EU countries to take action . they have the single market and the movement of people . We don’t…… and in Belgium . It seems that the U.K. is a model on how to NOT do things - but to learn from . Again Belgium is in the single market . We’re not .
And this explains why there were a few empty shelves on supermarket shelves in Brussels . A strike - and was quickly rectified . Of course it was reported completely differently here

Don’t forget from today you MUST have the EXD/SSD documents to enter any port to get into the EU

Chances are you won’t be allowed into the port without it

Oh - and 24 hours notice is needed to get it ready . Just in time ? Nope - gone

Take back control #BrexitIsntWorking
Quote :

The details necessary for us to make the declaration on your behalf must be provided to us via a template (available upon request) at least 24 hours before the unit is sent to the port. The vehicle must not arrive at Dover until the EXS declaration has been created
You will need to submit an ‘arrived’ Exit Summary Declaration which removes the requirement to submit a separate arrival message in CHIEF. To do this, you will need to submit an Export Full Declaration in CHIEF using the new Customs Procedure Code (CPS) 1/2
