Compromise on Bulgarian objections in "mobility package" has been negotiated

A preliminary agreement on the mobility package for international hauliers in the EU has been reached. The rules will also apply to light freight. The main objections of Bulgaria and a group of Eastern European countries referred to the posting of drivers, their rest times and so-called cabotage. The European Commission, the European Parliament and the European Council have finally agreed that the drivers will be allowed overnight stay in the vehicle cabin for no more than 45 hours, they will be obliged to return to the country of registration of the vehicle at least once every 4 weeks, regardless of which part of Europe they are located in. The trucks will have to return to the country - starting point, at least once every 8 weeks.
