The Posting-Free International Transport Declaration:
Who are we

We represent over 50  like-minded organizations from 24 EU Member States supporting an efficient internal market of road transport services and therefore cannot accept the application of the Posting of Workers Directive (96/71/EC)
to international transport operations in the European Union.

Why we support Posting Free Transport

Applying posting rules to international transport would be an unenforceable and disproportionate measure that will not solve any of the issues which currently challenge the transport market.



A lex specialis for international road transport which subjects drivers to posting of workers rules goes against all EU internal market achievements and adversely impacts the transport and logistics industry.
