In order to contribute to the efficient functioning of the single market in road transport and to ensure fair competition between resident and non-resident hauliers, the EU put in place two regulations, which have applied since December 2011. They modernised the rules on admission to the occupation of road transport operator and access to the road transport market. Despite the improvements they brought in the sector, persistent shortcomings such as diverging national interpretations and application of the rules, and uneven enforcement called for a revision of both acts.

On 31 May 2017, in the framework of its mobility package, the European Commission adopted new proposals, which should address the main issues affecting the sector, improve its competitiveness and efficiency.
