Check an HGV is Ready to Cross the Border
To help hauliers and HGV drivers understand if they are carrying the right documentation, the UK Government is developing a new web service, known as “Check an HGV is Ready to Cross the Border” (the Service) for the Roll on Roll off (RoRo) Freight Industry.
Following the consultation in relation to Operation Brock, this service will provide advice on documentation that HGVs over 7.5 tonnes will need when exporting freight from GB to the EU after December 31st 2020. The service will also generate a Kent Access Permit (KAP) for those who confirm either that they have, or will obtain en route, the necessary customs documentation.
A demonstration of the website can be found at https://check-an-hgv-is-ready-to-cross-the-border-demo.fbplatform.co.uk
This website provides a preview demonstration of the “Check an HGV is ready to cross the border” service that is in development and will be released on GOV.UK in December 2020.
Once the service is live, Government will close this demonstration website and redirect traffic to the 'live' service on the GOV.UK website. Do not bookmark this link, incorporate it into any guidance or share it without highlighting that it is solely for preview purposes.
