MEPs return mobility package proposals to committee

MEPs rejected proposed amendments to the “Mobility Package” road haulage reform proposals and referred them back to the Transport Committee for reconsideration.

In a vote on Wednesday, the Full House rejected Transport Committee amendments to the proposals on updating drivers’ rest time rules, cabotage and posting of drivers and referred them back to the committee for further consideration, in accordance with  Rule 59(4) of Parliament’s rules of procedure.

The proposals on the posting of drivers, drivers’ rest periods and access to the occupation of road transport operator and to the road haulage market are part of the “Mobility Package” tabled by the EU Commission in May 2017.

European Shippers' Council (ESC) regrets that the European Parliament failed to come to an agreement. ESC considers that European Parliament will have to renegotiate to come to an acceptable agreement that could be endorsed by a majority in plenary.
