Hauliers travelling to the EU

We have received an update from the Department of Transport in regards to some changes that will effect hauliers travelling to the EU.

New COVID-19 testing sites are open for hauliers:

  • Pease Pottage Services, 68 Ifield Road, Crawley RH11 7BQ
  • Essex Arena, A1306, Arterial Road, Grays, Purfleet RM19 1AE

More information on testing sites and opening times

The Ashford Waterbrook Inland Border Facility is now closed and all operations will run from the Ashford Sevington facility. The Sevington facility is just a short drive from the Waterbrook site.

As of the 16th March, haulier no longer require a COVID-19 test when returning to the Netherlands from the UK having spent less than 48 hours in the UK. These are the same arrangements that we have with France that came into effect on the 21st February.

Improved Check an HGV is Ready service

We’ve made some improvements to the Check an HGV is Ready to Cross the Border service so it is simpler to use and also shows the issue time and date on the Kent Access Permit.
