CLECAT position on access to the road haulage market (review of Regulation 1071/2009 and 1072/2009)

CLECAT published position paper on the Review of Regulation (EC) 1071/2009 and 1072/2009 on access to the road haulage market.

Having considered the various options outlined by the European Commission, and following consultation with its members, CLECAT voiced their support for Policy Package 1 for a limited period of time. After this defined period, an evaluation should review how to further remove restrictions on cabotage.

CLECAT also calls on the Commission to investigate the possibility of allowing Member States to remove restrictions through bilateral agreements. CLECAT is convinced that a more rapid pan-EU harmonisation of the rules governing the sector would have been achieved with the complete removal of restrictions on cabotage.
