Abstract

Small increases to checks at borders can result in very large and unpredictable delays to freight.Large and unpredictable delays have serious practical consequences for industrial practice. The second-order effects of these consequences – ‘cascade effects’ – may lead to devastating consequences for particular geographies and industries. The Government therefore needs to address port-related delays and congestion immediately, facing up to the reality that this will require very substantial public investment.
