Domestic and EU road transport
During the year, carriers will continue to implement and comply with rules within the Mobility Package 1 (Mobility Package 1) decided by the EU. The regulations have been developed to, among other things, improve and clarify working conditions for drivers and to achieve better compliance with current and new regulations.

What already introduced rules and upcoming changes will affect:
Lead times - As the lack of capacity and drivers will increase further
The costs - As the carriers get higher costs due to increased administration, increased overheads & reduced capacity.
