CLECAT Position Paper on the Revision of the Combined Transport Directive 92/106/EEC

CLECAT supports a revision of Directive 92/106/EEC on the establishment of common rules for certain types of combined transport of goods between Member States (CT Directive), which is outdated, ambiguous and creates barriers to the effective operation of combined transport.

The CT Directive currently discourages some combined transport operations and disregards other forms of multimodal transport. The upcoming review represents an opportunity to address the existing shortcomings and set the legislative preconditions to achieve the Union’s sustainability goals through a market-driven modal shift.

The position paper, which is available below, sets out CLECAT’s vision on how the revision of Directive 92/106/EEC can be a key factor to achieve a successful market-driven modal shift.
