Member States press for UK cabotage

[ January 25, 2019   //   ]

A group of EU countries was pressing the European Commission to give UK hauliers and airlines cabotage rights within the EU, according to the BBC. Under the European Commission’s contingency plans in the event of a no deal Brexit published on 19 December, the Commission tabled a proposal whereby UK hauliers could carry out certain transport operations in the EU on the basis of mutual recognition of the Community Licence; however, this arrangement would not cover cabotage or transport between two EU countries and comes with many other restrictions and caveats.
