On R4 this morning they ran a piece about the tender process for 'ECMT international haulage permits', which will be required by UK hauliers to operate in the EU after Brexit. - According to the RHA only 10% of applicants were granted permits by the EU. So, it looks like this will be the preferred method the EU will use to threaten an embargo / create a 'restriction of trade' on the UK, to 'focus government attention' on an outcome that suits the EU. Depth charges at the ready, It's the 'Battle for the Atlantic' all over again. Without turning this thread into a Brexit bitch-fest, what practical measures can be taken in advance to prevent serious disruption to farming operations in the UK, if (when?) the political dispute starts to heat up / escalate this summer ? I'm thinking along the lines of: Agchem imports - stockpile pre Brexit, 1 season, 2 seasons, 3... Ditto vet and med etc. Collapse in barley exports to Iberia - plant something other than spring barley? Collapse of lamb export demand? 'Tit for tat' import ban on French maize etc? Exodus / banning of foreign farm labour? Availability of combine spares (etc) within X days of breakdown - contingency fund to hire in 'alternatives'. Nitrogen fert - no action, suitable domestic and Ukrainian etc supply. Implications to cash flow / ability to trade / willingness of lender to support agri-business, or sell us out? What would you add to the list?
