Presentation of the Study on Weights and Dimensions 11/01/24

< Back to list

CER, ERFA, UIC, UIP and UIRR have the pleasure to invite you to the live-streamed presentation of the Study on the Impacts of the Proposed Amendments to the Weights and Dimensions Directive
on Combined Transport and Rail Freight Transport

When : 11.01.2024 – 14:00 – 15:30 – Online

The proposals tabled by the European Commission as part of the Greening Freight Transport Package include the revision of the Directive on the Weights and Dimensions of road vehicles. The stated aims of the amendment are to promote zero-emission vehicles (ZEV), to facilitate the use of heavier and longer vehicles in cross-border (the so-called EMS – European Modular System), and to support intermodal transport operations.

The five associations CER – ERFA – UIC – UIP – UIRR have commissioned the German consulting company d-fine GmbH to analyse the impacts of the proposed measures on combined transport, on conventional rail freight, on road transport infrastructure and the subsequent risk of reverse modal shift from rail to road.
