There has been no more frustrating a place than “T11” at Dublin Port for lorry drivers, customs agents and businesses since Brexit kicked in just over a fortnight ago.
The terminal at the State’s busiest port, manned by a strengthened team of customs officials from Revenue, is where “red-routed” lorries are sent if their paperwork is not in order and checks are required. Since Brexit, a lot of paperwork has not been in order.
