One of the most important to respect is the one that defines the capacities and measures of the cargo truck. Do you know what is the maximum allowed?

Road transport is one of the most used for the exchange of goods. This is thanks to the relationship between price, safety and time. At the European level we have a large road network that allows us to link practically all countries by road. Therefore there are not too many limits when choosing this method also in international trade.

The first thing to ensure is that the personnel have the necessary training. All carriers will need to have reciprocal recognition of professional training. This is achieved with certificates issued by other EU Member States for international journeys. Secondly, it must be ensured that the cargo truck has the established dimensions and the relevant protocols are carried out.
