The survey, carried out as the country deals with a haulage crisis which has left some shop shelves bare and sparked a run on fuel pumps,  

It also comes after warnings from the fishing industry that their livlihoods were being devastated and border issues which have seen goods being held up for days - problems dismissed as "teething troubles" by Boris Johnson.
