30 January: ESC webinar on Revision of Weights and Dimensions

In the wake of the revised Weights and Dimensions Directive released on 11 July 2023 as part of the Green Freight Package, European Shippers’ Council is hosting a webinar to address critical questions raised by its members and stakeholders:

  • Cross-border transport and harmonisation: How does cross-border transport with longer and heavier trucks foster harmonisation among Member States and ultimately contribute to enhanced transport efficiency?
  • Nordic countries: The unique case of Nordic countries employing divergent weight and dimension standards might necessitate greater flexibility.
  • Combined transport: The Revision of the Combined Transport Directive: open debate surrounds its implications for competitiveness and whether it will induce a reverse modal shift.

Please register your attendance by 26 January 2024.
