Yesteday we reported that JF Hillebrand has informed the trade it will not plan any collections for the next 48 hours from EU countries or until the government indicates what will happen with Brexit.

In a customer advisory note, it said this is the “only responsible course of action” due to “continued uncertainty over whether the UK will leave the EU with or without a deal”.

Today the logistics provider sent us this statement:

“The story published Thursday 21st March stating that JF Hillebrand has suspended collections from EU countries is incorrect.

“There are no suspensions and our services for EU customers continue uninterrupted.

“In the event of a no deal Brexit we have robust contingency plans in place that will minimise the potential for disruption.”

Here is the letter it sent to the trade:
