Access for EU and UK freight operators to one another’s markets is governed by the Trade and Cooperation Agreement (TCA) There are no restrictions on freight movements between the UK and EU. Once an international laden journey has been completed, a UK operator can make two freight movements in a 7 day period within the EU, one of which may be within a single EU country. EU operators can make up to two movements in a 7 day period in the UK following an international laden journey.

The Government has no plans to renegotiate the TCA at this time.
