AFTER an approach by the National Economic
Development Council to the board of the Transport Holding Company, British Road Services last week withdrew its objection to a licence application by a Hove, Sussex, firm to carry export goods.
At Eastbourne, SCA Freight Ltd., of Dorset Court, Kingsway. Hove, was granted a B licence to carry goods for export and import to and from Austria, Greece, Italy, Yugoslavia and Switzerland, via Driver, Newhaven and Southampton, using a box trailer vehicle. The licence excludes general haulage and restricts activities in this country to a 150-mile radius of Hove.
The South Eastern LA. Maj.-Gen. A. F. J. Elmslie, had previously adjourned the application on February 21 when he was told that the firm's system. using sealed vehicles to avoid repeated Customs formalities and driving straight through from manufacturer to Continental destination, enabled British firms to compete more successfully with those on the Continent.
SCA originally faced 20 objectors. Some withdrew after negotiations and all but BR S withdrew on February 21.
Mr. Adrian Chambers, SCA managing director, said business had increased so much that he would be applying for short-term licences to cover further vehicles, pending another full-term application.
