The current EU rules provide to haulage companies the possibility to use hired vehicles, but also allow Member States to restrict this. As part of the 2017 road transport mobility package, the European Commission proposed to soften the existing restrictions and establish a uniform regulatory framework, which would give transport operators across the EU equal access to the market for hired goods vehicles. As co-legislators, the European Parliament and the Council have agreed new rules in October 2021 ...

While inland navigation is a cost-effective and environmentally friendly mode of transport, it is not used to its full capacity. Apart from the need for significant infrastructure improvements, the sector is affected by limited labour mobility and shortage of qualified workers. To enhance labour mobility, the European Commission proposes to establish a common system of qualifications for workers on EU inland waterways. While the EU legislation currently applies only to boatmasters, the proposal introduces ...

Passport-free travel across the Schengen area has been called into question as a result of pressure on certain internal EU borders from the rising number of asylum-seekers and migrants seeking to reach certain Member States, as well as security concerns in the wake of the Paris terrorist attacks. In addition to the loss of personal freedom involved, the reintroduction of borders could well bring significant economic costs, which would be felt both within and outside the Schengen area. This briefing ...

High-speed rail in the EU

Briefing 29-09-2015

High-speed rail (HSR) started developing in Europe in the late 1970s, first in France and Italy, and subsequently in Germany, Spain and the UK, among others.

The EU started providing specific support to European rail projects with the establishment of the trans-European transport network (TEN-T) in the early 1990s, some priority projects of which concern HSR. The EU also promotes HSR development through other means, including ...

The foiled Thalys train attack of August 2015 has put EU rail security under the spotlight. Increasing passenger and freight flows and relatively open access to EU rail infrastructure make rail transport a soft target for unlawful acts. A ministerial-level meeting at the end of August examined the challenges facing rail security and the possibilities for a strengthened EU response.
