CLECAT Position on internal market and social issues - Mobility Package

The Mobility Package that the European Commission presented on 31 May 2017 is an important package as it contains important proposals on road charging, cabotage, posting of workers (lex specialis) access to the road haulage market and enforcement that will directly impact transport and mobility in Europe. 

CLECAT supports on increased focus on fighting illegal practices in road freight transport through initiatives to enhance a (uniform) enforcement and cooperation between national authorities. However, CLECAT does not support the application of the Posting of Workers directive to international transport. At the same time we continue to fight against internal market fragmentation and disproportionate national measures that unduly hamper free movement in the single market. 

Below are the two position papers on the Mobility Package: one on the internal market pillar and social elements and one on the charging/eurovignette proposals.
