Specialist hauliers to move more freely between countries

09 May 2022/Categories: Bus & Coach, Freight Forwarding, Logistics & Supply Chain


Hauliers serving music concerts, sports and cultural events will be able to move their vehicles freely between Great Britain and the EU from late summer.

New provisions for specialist hauliers are set to ensure British talent can tour more freely between Great Britain and abroad.

‘Dual registration’ will be created following consultation with the specialist haulier touring sector and will let hauliers drive the same vehicle in Great Britain and abroad.

The specialist events hauliers will be able to transfer their vehicles between operator licences without needing to pay additional Vehicle Excise Duty (VED) in Great Britain for 6 months.

Hauliers serving music concerts, sports and cultural events will be able to move their vehicles freely between Great Britain and the EU due to new measures for the haulage sector.

 

Grant Shapps, Transport Secretary, said: 

“British talent has long been at the heart of global performing arts and our specialist haulage sector is critical to the success of their tours.”

Tarrant Anderson, Company Director of Vans for Bands, said:

“We are really pleased that the Department for Transport has engaged in detail with our sector on this critical issue and has come up with a solution to keep the live music touring industry moving. Without this initiative a large number of tours this year would simply have been unable to take place.”
