Welsh Assembly members on the “Cross-party external affairs committe” have warned that urgent action is needed to avoid disruption and ensure ports can cope with post-Brexit border controls.
The committee has produced a report that looks at the impact of leaving the EU on 32 ports in Wales (seven of which are considered major ports).
The report says that having a soft border in Ireland but a hard sea border between the Republic and the UK could “severely disadvantage Welsh ports and result in a loss of competitiveness”.
The report also warns that drivers will face long delays at ports and tailbacks on the roads if Brexit is not handled properly at Welsh ports.
