CLECAT has welcomed the recent decision of the European Commission to start infringement proceedings against Germany for the application of its minimum wage law (MiLog) on international road transport operations. 

On 5 May, the European Parliament Transport Committee held an exchange of views on the proposed Ports Regulation, having suspended work on the proposal due to the elections of May 2014. The rapporteur, Knut Fleckenstein MEP, put forward a pragmatic position on the regulation.

CLECAT together with a group of stakeholder’ associations in the maritime supply chain including ESPO, ECASBA, ECSA, ECS, ESN, ESPO, FEPORT, Interferry and World Shipping Council have send today an open letter to European policymakers.

On the 6th of March, at the hearing of the EESC (European Economic and Social Committee) on “The White Paper on Transport”, CLECAT addressed the needs of the logistics sector with regards to the future European transport policy.

More cooperation on the rail network is needed! So why is a useful cooperation platform now at risk of being scrapped by the latest developments in the 4th Railway Package?

CLECAT has welcomed the move of Emirates SkyCargo to introduce all-in cargo rates. This will provide shippers and freight forwarders with a better picture of the full cost of shipment without the add-ons (fuel surcharges and security charges) which is a feature of the air freight industry.
