Bring back TIR in Europe, says IRU

[ April 30, 2012   //   ]

The International Road Transport Union has called for the TIR system to be reinstated in the EU. It formed part of a resolution adopted by its general assembly in Geneva on 27 April which called for he the EU Customs Code to be changed to allow the use of the TIR system in the EU for goods transported under customs control and thereby releasing 600,000 road transport companies from the constraints of the current T system.

The resolution also called for an end to the indexation and introduction of new taxes, charges and duties on road transport and the earmarking of revenues to support investments in road transport and infrastructure initiatives and for a level regulatory playing field between transport modes in taxation, excise duty, and VAT.
