Logistics UK to survey members on the impact of the EU Mobility Package on vans

The Department for Transport (DfT) has asked Logistics UK to survey its van operating members on the potential impact of the EU Mobility Package on vans.

The Mobility Package was initiated by the European Commission in 2017 to improve drivers’ working conditions and safety and to ensure market fairness and efficiency.

While most of the new rules governing driving and rest time became applicable on 20 August 2020, the new rules governing freight transport market access and access to the profession are applicable as from 2 February 2022. This is the date from which vans over 2.5 tonnes which cross international borders performing hire or reward will come in scope of operator licensing.

James Firth, Head of Road Freight Regulation Policy, Logistics UK, said: “During discussions with DfT, Logistics UK has agreed to survey its members with van operations to help inform the government’s decision making when it comes to implementing the final version of the EU’s Mobility Package on 2 February 2022. Logistics UK strongly urges members to complete the forthcoming survey to ensure their voices are heard ahead of the next stage of implementing the new regulatory package.”

Van operators should look out for an email from the Logistics UK policy team inviting them to complete the survey.
