Transport and Logistics Poland (TLP) is one of the signatories of the joint declaration. All the signatories share a concern for the situation of their members, hauliers in their respective countries and the possible consequences for the common European market, which is now facing a serious danger.
“International road transport carriers of Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and other EU Member States are extremely concerned about concerted efforts by certain Member States and EU decision makers to protect domestic markets, thus injuring the basic pillars of the European Union – free movement of people, goods and services.”
This is why they have decided to create a joint declaration, in which they protest against the Mobility Package proposals. In their view, these proposals are discriminatory, raise barriers in road transport with tremendous effects, causing great administrative, organizational and financial burden, and fragmentation of the European market of transport services. Instead of reaching the declared goals they will worsen road transport performance and cause dramatic costs increase, loss of competitiveness and exclusion even from third country markets.
