About the Mobility Package
Mobility Package price increases
Since January 2021, following Brexit and the implementation of measures within the Mobility Package, the shortage of drivers in Europe has increased. This has led to a significant rise in transportation costs, and it is an ongoing trend with no clear end in sight. It has become even more crucial for A2B-online to limit these cost increases and, at the same time, adapt as a shipper to the shortages in the driver market. We closely collaborate with our customers to achieve this goal. After all, the more flexible you are, the easier it is for us to arrange your transportation and for you to have and maintain control over your transport costs.
What is the Mobility Package?
The Mobility Package is a package of European laws and regulations for the transport sector. Its aim is to align rules across EU member states, create a fairer European playing field, and improve social conditions for drivers.
The Mobility Package includes new rules on driving and rest times, cabotage, and the mandatory return of the driver and vehicle. The first regulations came into effect on August 20, 2020.
