EU legislation affecting own-account transporters
Fleet efficiency and EU legislation on transport affects productivity of textile services. In order to be in a better position to track latest trends and developments on transport policy, ETSA is building a partnership with European Shippers' Council (ESC), which represented own-account transporters - such as ourselves.
Issues addressed at the latest ESC meeting on 17 April include digital tachograph, Eurovignette (now only applicable in BE, DK, LU, NL and SE), urban access restrictions, road pricing, growing pressure to integrate societal costs into road transport costs.
An ETSA meeting on transport will be organized in the second half of 2013.
