Texts adopted: P8_TA(2015)0310

– having regard to Rules 123(2) and 123(4) of its Rules of Procedure,
A. whereas the Commission should urgently put forward legislative proposals concerning road
haulage market (hereinafter ‘Road initiatives’), in order to identify and address the
challenges that the sector is facing.
B. whereas the road transport economy in the European Union accounts for 5 million direct
jobs and contributed close to 2% of the EU GDP, with 344 000 of road passenger transport
companies and over 560 000 road freight transport companies1;
C. whereas in 2013 passenger transport activities travelling by road in the EU amounted to
5,323 billion passenger kilometres, accounting passenger cars for 72.3% and buses and
coaches for 8.1% of the total passenger transport activities in the EU-282;
D. whereas road transport represents a driving force of the EU economy and should remain a
frontrunner in generating further economic growth and job creation, and promoting
competitiveness, sustainable development and territorial cohesion;
E. whereas road is a sector where Europe is a world leader, in both manufacturing and
transport operations, and it is crucial that European road transport continues to develop,
invest and renew itself in a sustainable manner, in order to maintain its technological
leadership at global level within a global economy ever more characterised by the
emergence of powerful new players and new business models;
F. whereas road transport successively continues to face out fossil fuels, with an urgent need to
improve the energy efficiency and sustainability of this mode, notably via alternative fuels
and digitalisation, in a cost-efficient manner without sacrificing its competitiveness;
G. whereas transport plays a significant role in climate change, accounting for some 23.2% of
EU Greenhouse Gas total emissions, and road transportation for 72.8% of the EU transport
GHG emissions in 2014;
H. whereas road congestion is estimated to cost the EU economy the equivalent of 1% of its
GDP in time losses, additional fuel consumption and pollution;
Improving competitiveness and innovation in the road sector
1. Considers that the Road initiatives should provide a much-needed boost for a more
sustainable and competitive European road sector, strengthen European road infrastructure,
ensure a level playing field for operators in the global market as well as a the completion of
and a better-functioning Internal Market for road transport of passengers and freight, and set
out a long-term strategy for Europe’s road sector;

2. Calls on the Commission to take into account the Parliament’s resolution of 9 September

2015 on the Implementation of the 2011 White Paper on Transport when drafting the Road
3. Emphasises that the road sector is a major contributor to EU jobs and growth and is closely
linked to competitiveness in the EU road sector; asks therefore for proactive policies aimed
at supporting and developing the road sector, notably in view of the future digital
developments in this sector;
4. Urges the Commission to increase the interoperability in general, and in particular for
electronic tolling systems in the EU, considering the current lack of harmonisation which
prevents to deliver the highest added value and generates excessive burden on Heavy Goods
Vehicles and other vehicles; encourages on this regard the use of digital technologies (i.e.
paperless and standardised documents, e-CMR smart tachograph, etc.);
Facilitating cross-border mobility on road
5. Urges the Commission and Member States to monitor the implementation of relevant EU
rules more closely, including as regards cross-border cooperation and interpretation and
proper enforcement of the existing legislation, and to tackle the different national
legislations which create a patchwork of divergent, sometimes conflicting rules
undermining the establishment of an Internal Market for road transport in particular
cabotage rules, driving restrictions and rest periods to be spent in the driver’s cabin;
6. Stresses that a coherent, fair, transparent and non-discriminating road charging system
implemented in the EU, proportionate to the use of the road and to the environmental costs
generated by lorries and cars, would have a positive effect in order to tackle the degrading
state of the road infrastructure, congestion and pollution; calls on the Commission to
propose as a principle an electronic time, distance and sustainability-based charge for
passenger cars;
7. Calls on the Commission to propose a revision of the European Electronic Toll Service
(EETS) Directive, which should include an external cost element based on the ‘polluter
pays’ principle, should be fully interoperable to contribute to the emergence of a EU system
of collecting tolls, should be based on transparency, a better development and integration of
the different ITS equipment installed in the vehicles as well as a greater clarification of the
legislation in order to better define and protect the rights of EETS providers and make
their obligations less burdensome;
8. Underlines that hired vehicles are usually the newest and cleanest on the market,
contributing on the efficiency of the road transport sector; calls therefore on the
Commission to review the current rules on hired vehicles, which currently allow the
Member States to forbid the use of such vehicles for international transport operations;
9. Is concerned about the frauds concerning tachographs and cabotage operations and calls
therefore on the Commission to address these problems inter alia through the use of new
technologies for better enforcement of the rules and better monitoring of the cabotage
Improving social conditions and safety rules

10. Underlines the need for the Commission as a major priority of the road initiatives to
improve legal clarity and facilitate the freedom to provide transport services across the EU,
while ensuring Member States’ proper implementation and enforcement of rules governing
working conditions, working time and social rights.
11. Is concerned about socially problematic business practices, related mainly to cabotage rules
and to the so-called ‘letterbox’ companies, (in particular issues concerning disguised selfemployment and social dumping, which arise as a consequence of a lack of clarity of
European rules);

Highlights that the different national legislations regarding social conditions and rights
in the road transport sector in the Union generate considerable administrative burden for the
operators, increase the complexity of the legal framework and undermine the establishment
of an Internal Market in the road transport sector in the Union.

13. Calls on the Commission and Member States to address the quality of work in the road
transport mode, with respect in particular to training, certification, working conditions and
career development, with a view to creating quality jobs, developing the necessary skills
and strengthening the competitiveness of the EU road transport operators; calls on the
Commission to revise the Combined Transport Directive 92/106/EEC in order to eliminate
unfair practices and to comply with the social legislation relating to combined transport;

Promoting a low emission road transport
14. States that there is an acute need to improve the resource efficiency of the road transport,
with a view to more efficient use of existing capacity;
15. Calls for concrete measures to ensure the implementation of the ‘user pays’ and ‘polluter
pays’ principles in road transport, including guidelines and best practices, and for a fair
level playing field to be ensured across all EU regions;
16. Notes that intelligent transport systems (ITS) such as platooning could play an important
role in enhancing the efficiency, safety and environmental performance of transport system,
therefore calls upon the Commission to stimulate the development and use of ITS;
17. Instructs its President to forward this resolution to the Council and the Commission.
