ESC – Transprime seminar Transport for Future
Barcelona, 17 May 2018

The European Shippers’ Council (ESC) together with the Spanish Shippers’ Council Transprime are organising a seminar on how the Mobility Package – new legislation in road transport – will impact the logistics chain.

This seminar will enable you to get ready for the future transport legislation and adapt the policy making in your company. It will cover social dimension, road charges, driving and resting times, position of combined transport, and standards for heavy duty vehicles.

The European Commission has published two out of three parts of the large revision of the legislation on road transport, the so-called Mobility Package. The third part is foreseen for May 2018. This revision is one of the largest changes of the legislation in years.

Amongst the speakers there will be Deputy Director-General for Mobility and Transport Matthew Baldwin, Member of the European Parliament Izaskun Bilbao, and other high-ranking officials and experts from the industry. Please check the full programme below. Participation is free of charge. This event is kindly hosted and sponsored by the Port of Barcelona.
