The new mobility package

Ladies and gentlemen

The implementation of the EU Mobility Package I has continued since February 2nd, 2022. This reform is one
positive and necessary step, which primarily improves working conditions for drivers across Europe
to improve and adjust. It represents the biggest change to EU road traffic rules to date
The new legal requirements will have a major impact on road freight transport capacity in
Europe and have on the cost level. Among other things, the following effects can be expected:
• Further reduction of the available capacities
• Less efficient use of existing capacities
• Modified and more expensive production solutions
• Changed throughput times
Increased tracking and management in the transport chain
In order to maintain quality and delivery times despite these extensive market changes
can, we cannot avoid the additional costs from February 14th, 2022 in the form of a surcharge
to calculate.
The amount of the surcharge, we like to call it "mobility package floater", which varies from country to country
can be found in the attached PDF table.
Currently, the surcharge only includes the effects of wage cost increases, since the financial effects
of the new cabotage regulations and other measures cannot yet be evaluated. A gradual
Adjustment of the "mobility package floater" is therefore to be expected.
With this letter you will also receive an explanatory overview of the effects of the
mobility package.
We welcome the implementation of measures to improve the working situation of drivers in

These measures are indeed necessary and to be seen positively, but unfortunately they make them more expensive
transportation costs.
