Mobility and international transport

Jan Cremers participated in a panel on transport and international mobility in a broadcasting of BNR radio on 27 July 2017.

The debate focused on the proposals that the European Commission launched in May 2017 under the title ‘Europe on the Move’. Cremers stated that the draft regulation of the entrance to the international transport market does not satisfactorily take into account the experiences in the sector with artificial arrangements. The proposals, therefore, will not effectively tackle abuses through artificial arrangements. He qualified the proposed national carriage (cabotage) rules as very disappointing.
