Travelling to the EU? Prepare now for the EU posting of drivers portal

From 2 February, the EU is introducing new rules that mean if you operate loaded goods journeys in and between European Member States (cabotage or cross-trade), you may need to register information digitally about your journeys on a new EU web based portal.

This will include details of the operator, driver, driver employment details, dates of travel, and the vehicle used before the journey commences.

This will apply to you if you use:

•            vans of any size or other light goods vehicles (sometimes called ‘light commercial vehicles’)

•            vans towing trailers

•            cars towing trailers

•            HGVs

•            HGVs towing trailers

This will also apply to you if you transport goods between 2 points in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway for commercial purposes. This includes:

•            cabotage jobs

•            cross-trade jobs

•            moving goods for your own business’ use

Find out whether this new requirement applies to you.

Prepare now

The EU has informed us that the portal will be available ahead of 2 February. To use the service you will need to register, then you will be able to add details of your drivers to reuse when adding journeys.

You can prepare now by getting your information ready ahead of the portal opening for registrations.
