Swiss haulage agreement

29 January 2019

On 25 January 2019, the UK signed the text of an agreement with Switzerland on the international carriage of passengers and goods by road.

The agreement will ensure UK hauliers, and commercial bus drivers, will be able to continue driving to, from and through, Switzerland after the UK leaves the EU, as they do now.

“This is,” the Department for Transport (DfT) said, “one of the positive steps the UK Government is taking to maintain our relationship and co-operation with Switzerland as we exit the EU. These measures ensure the continuity of the effects of our currently existing international treaties.”
