Challenges and opportunities for Europe’s small transport firms

At a Glance 15-11-2016

The projected growth in demand for transport will magnify the challenges – such as congestion, decarbonisation and the digital transition – faced by the EU transport sector. Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in this sector are confronted by these evolving trends but can also play a vital role in addressing them and building new business opportunities. The EP's Committee on Transport and Tourism has adopted an own-initiative report on new opportunities for small transport businesses, including collaborative business models, to be debated during the November plenary session.
