Concerns arise as HMRC has yet to build GVSM IT System

With a little under six months left before the Brexit Transition period expires, HMRC appears to be facing a crunch to get the proposed Goods Vehicle Movement System (GVMS) in place in time. The system is intended to allow companies and hauliers to declare goods ahead of reaching the border, allowing for a smoother flow of traffic at ports such as Dover.
