Nov 07, 2018, 06:58 AM

Kevin is an EU citizen, an Irish man who works as a driver for UK business Fresh Logistics, who waits uncertain of his post-Brexit future. Andrew Baxter is managing director of Europa Worldwide Group, he campaigned to leave, admits there will be short term complications, but hasn’t changed his opinion. Brexit is a huge and heavy topic across our industry and its many levels. Brexit is being described as a ‘logistics problem’ and as we sway between deal and no-deal scenarios, logisticians are getting prepared.

In this episode, as government’s knee-deep in negotiations, we ask Kevin and Andrew what Brexit means to them. We also source some practical advice from Pauline Bastidon head of European Policy at the Freight Transport Association (FTA) and Shane Brennan, chief executive officer of the Food Storage & Distribution Federation (FSDF).
