Mobility Package 1 and impacts on combined transport sector
The study, carried out by TRT on behalf of the European Commission (DG MOVE), provides the analysis of the impacts on the combined transport sector of Regulation 2020/1055 amending Regulation 1072/2009/EU (Mobility Package 1); specifically, the new provisions allowing Member States to apply the so-called “cabotage restrictions” to road legs of international combined transport (CT) operations if those road legs do not cross a border. In order to gather input for a qualified ex-ante assessment on the potential impacts, a survey was carried out addressing two types of CT operators: transport organisers and terminal operators, covering all modal combinations and a wide range of Member States. The data and the information collected focuses on the compliance strategies envisaged by the CT operators and on the impacts that the new rules could have on their activity.
