Andusia Discuss Brexit
Last month, Andusia Director, Mark Terrell, spoke on a panel at the Energy From Waste Conference in London. Now in its 15th year, the Energy from Waste conference brings together an international audience of more than 250 of the sector’s thought leaders and key decision makers for unrivalled senior-level industry debate.
During the two-day event, Mark joined an expert panel to discuss issues around post-Brexit changes in onshore and offshore movements, regional flows of materials, spare capacity and the long-term role of RDF exports and labour and customs implications.
It is Andusia’s view that RDF exports will continue to play a valuable, and crucial, role in diverting waste away from landfill for the foreseeable future. The UK still sends over 12m tonnes of waste to landfill but without further action, and as we begin to close landfill sites, we will find there is still 8.5m tonnes of non-recyclable waste without a home.
During the discussion, it was widely agreed, that there could be possible delays with regards to truck deliveries and hold-ups at port during any transition period following a no-deal Brexit. However, this would only be a short-term issue and there would be no impact on existing or new TFS applications.
Mark summarised “At Andusia, logistics is at the heart of our business. We deal with all the necessary paperwork and TFS applications, offering our clients a bespoke and full supply chain solution.”
Andusia has recently celebrated its 7thanniversary and with awards such as a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade 2016 (an industry sector first), the company prides itself on its knowledge and expertise of the sector and is confident it can help guide customers through any Brexit result.
“We don’t foresee any change to the export of RDF from the UK. We are prepared for every eventuality and will ensure to minimise any impact it has on our customers no matter what the Brexit outcome come 29th March” ended Mark.
