The Combined Transport Directive supports the shift from road freight to lower emission transport modes such as inland waterways, maritime transport, and rail.
In light of the European Green Deal’s calls for higher ambition and the need to implement the ‘polluter pays’ and ‘user pays’ principles, this initiative will review: which transport operations should be supported and which support measures would be most effective in this regard.
The European Commission has opened a feedback period on its Proposal for a directive – COM(2023)702. This period starts from 7 November 2023 and lasts till 10 January 2024. All feedback received will be summarised by the European Commission and presented to the European Parliament and Council with the aim of feeding into the legislative debate. Feedback received will be published on the EC website and, therefore, must adhere to the feedback rules.
