Evolving border processes in the UK

The next stage of the UK’s border target operating model is to take effect on 30 April 2024. Unsworth, a UK-based freight forwarder, held an event at an inland border clearance facility to engage with industry players and provide information on future border processes.


The interactive sessions at the hub in Sevington, which is run by the department for environment, food, and rural affairs, brought together almost 100 clients and other stakeholders.


The new model will introduce documentary and risk-based identification as well as physical checks on medium-risk animal products, plants, and plant products. High-risk food and feed from the EU will also be checked.


“With the landscape of border regulations undergoing significant shifts, some have voiced concerns that the potential for disruption at the border at the end of this month is significant,” said Unsworth Group commercial director Charles Hogg. The aim of the event was to equip the company’s customers with the knowledge and resources necessary to manage these changes, he added. (mk)
