The Freight Transport Association, or the FTA, has reacted to the publication of the National Audit Office report which explores the Customs Declaration Service programme. The Association has noted a number of concerning points in the report such how far the project has progressed and how suitable the Customs programme is going to be when the levels of declarations increase across British ports after Britain leaves the European Union. The FTA is very well known as the largest membership association in the UK logistics sector. The Association is also the most influential membership association in this sector. The FTA has expressed concerns over the new Customs Declaration Service which is currently being explored by the HMRC. The FTA are unsure that the new system will be able to operate successfully with the expected increase of Customs declarations by 255 million after Brexit.
