Warning: Seamus Leheny says hauliers could face problems in the coming weeks

Freight industry chief Seamus Leheny said confusion around new checks, including 'pre-notification' obligations imposed on inbound lorries from the UK was a result of what he said had been a rushed separation deal between the UK Government and the EU.

Mr Leheny, policy manager for Northern Ireland at Logistics UK, warned hauliers that failure to notify ports of their arrival would lead to delays and in some cases vehicles being turned away.

But he told Business Telegraph that there was some short-term leniency as companies come to grips with the new process.
