Main results

The Council agreed on its position (general approach) on a key reform of the road transport sector, which includes drivers' working conditions, special posting rules for drivers in international transport, access to the haulage market, and improved enforcement.

This reform will provide much-needed clarity for the road haulage sector. We reached a balanced outcome, which ensures decent working conditions for drivers, a well-functioning single market for transport companies and efficient control methods and cooperation for enforcement authorities.
