A selection of those relevant to the road transport sector are linked to directly below.

Commercial road haulage in the EU
Operating bus or coach services abroad
Driving in the EU
Vehicle insurance
Trading with the EU
VAT for businesses
Exporting animals and animal products
Importing animals and animal products
Importing and exporting plants and plant products
Vehicle type approval
Travelling in the Common Travel Area (UK, Ireland, Channel Islands, Isle of Man)

Please note that this list is not exhaustive; a full list of technical notices, including guidance for more specialised imports and exports, can be found on the gov.uk website.

There is also more specific advice for commercial drivers and operators, including on applying for ECMT permits, here – while this page from HMRC details what hauliers operating between the EU and UK can expect on day one of a no-deal Brexit.
