New FTAI online training session aimed at haulage operators

FTA Ireland is this month hosting zoom training sessions aimed at haulage operators.

Entitled ‘Customs Procedures for the Haulage Operator’, the online training sessions are designed specifically for people working in the logistics and transport sectors needing to update their customs knowledge in light of the dangers posed by a ‘no-deal’ Brexit.

This course will showcase the important role played by transport operators in the logistics and supply chain sector and demonstrate the importance of being Brexit ready in order to remain competitive.

Participants will learn about customs in a holistic manner in order to understand and appreciate the various customs stakeholder’s motivations and to be better placed to have a strong working relationship with customs officers and other relevant government agencies e.g. Department of Agriculture, Food and Marine, Revenue resulting in more efficient operations and satisfied customers.

Course Aims & Objectives:

  • Equip participants with the tangible skills, knowledge and confidence to undertake a sustainable working relationship with the Office of the Revenue Commissioners.
  • Assess the potential consequences of Brexit on Irish haulage operators e.g.tariffs and border disruption.
  • Encourage deeper appreciation of the role and potential of the transport function in the international supply chain.
