Three-journey cabotage rule to go?

[ June 12, 2015   //   ]

A proposal to remove the current three-journey limit on cabotage operations could be included in the European Commission’s new road transport package now expected to be unveiled in early 2016, say Brussels sources. The Commission says that the rule – under which transport operations are only supposed to carry out a maximum of three domestic cabotage journeys following an international leg, is impossible to enforce. However any changes are likely to be gradual, in recognition of the marked differences in working conditions and wages persist between different EU member states.
Moves to phase out vignette road toll stickers in favour of distance-based charging schemes for trucks and passenger cars could also be included in the package.
