UETR intervenes on international haulage market
8 November 2012- Hearing at DG MOVE on the review of Regulation n. 1072/2009 on access to market
A delegation of UETR members led by Secretary General Marco Digioia met in Brussels on the 7 th of November the Head of Unit of DG MOVE Land Transport Mr. Kristian Hedberg to discuss the review of EU Regulation n. 1072/2009 on access to the international road haulage market.
The hearing tackled the following issues:
Application of local labour rules and control procedures
Opening options for cabotage
"UETR continues to call on the European Union for harmonization of costs and conditions before discussion on opening options can take place. Moreover, the creation of a full and general co-liability principle of the other parts of the supply chain - not only for infringements of provisions on driving times and rest periods but also compliance with the rules on access to market is of paramount importance: it is the only way to develop a mature industrial relations system and achieve a genuine internal market for inland transport in the EU " Mr. Digioia says.
