Countless surveys have been polling businesses on Brexit expectations: will there be a deal, or not? But one from Blacks Solicitors, and reported in Logistics Manager, shows that more than half (52%) of the logistics and transport sector is unprepared for Brexit. A further 39% say they have limited understanding of how the process will work or affect their businesses. That same percentage says the situation has put them off hiring EU workers should immigration laws change. Louis MacWilliam, immigration expert at Blacks, said: “With less than seven months until Britain leaves the EU, it is worrying that such large numbers of employers still feel in the dark about their ability to retain and recruit EU nationals. This is in spite of the Home Office publishing concrete details about the new mandatory registration scheme for EU nationals, due to open later this year.”
