CLECAT position on Social Legislation in Road Freight Transport

CLECAT supports the need to clarify and simplify existing regulation with the ultimate aim to have a better functioning internal market. The Posting of Workers Directive should not apply to drivers in transit and international transport as these drivers as they are mobile workers.

A strengthened European Register of Road Transport Operators (ERRU) should provide the basis of a practical and harmonised system of enforcement. It is up to enforcement authorities to find the loopholes of those that perform activities that go beyond what is legally allowed.

The CLECAT position paper is available below.
