Members should be aware that from 1st February all movements through locations using the Goods Vehicle Movement Service (GVMS), including empty trailers, now need to have a Goods Movement Reference (GMR) to cross the UK border.

Previously, HMRC had provided carriers with the temporary optional ability to allow empty units not under transport contract to be embarked without a GMR, but this was only for the month of January to manage traffic flows. Defra have reported that use of this temporary optional easement has been dropping off as hauliers adjust to new requirements and a result the easement has ended as planned on 1st February.

We are advised that any non-compliant vehicles will be unable to embark from their port of departure. However, HMRC will continue to work closely with carriers and other partners to monitor the situation on the ground closely and to provide further support as and where necessary.

To find out more about how to get a GMR please see GOV.UK
