Haulage drivers exempt from COVID-19 quarantine when returning to UK

JMS of Doncaster Ltd provide same-day deliveries, logistics and warehousing services to clients throughout the UK and across Europe, crossing borders and hopping on ferries to meet our delivery deadlines. We've built up a fantastic reputation for providing a reliable and high-quality delivery service to our clients regardless of location, so when the first lockdown measures were placed, we worked especially hard to meet our deadlines in the pressing circumstances.

With a variety of lockdown restrictions now being lifted, the haulage industry can begin to operate as normal. As an independent haulage firm, we were delighted to hear that the government had updated the travel advice regarding COVID-19 quarantine when leaving and returning to the UK.

As of June 8 2020, the UK government updated the list of travellers exempt from border rules in the UK to include "Drivers of goods vehicles or public service vehicles and other employees of community licence holders for the international carriage of goods or passengers by coach and bus." This means anyone making official deliveries to destinations outside of the UK will not need to self-isolate for 14 days. You will, however, need to complete the Public Health passenger locator form before you travel to the UK. The government guidelines state that drivers will have to show that travel is part of your job, which could include a letter from your employer, your operator's licence or a consignment note.

This is fantastic news for not only JMS, but for the entire haulage industry! It's going to allow us to make faster deliveries across the globe, reaching our clients wherever they are in the world.
