Press release

The IRU warns that the new Directive on inland transport of dangerous goods will harm industry and Europe's competitiveness.

Geneva – The International Road Transport Union strongly opposes the imposition of a prescribed transport mode over another, as stipulated by the Directive adopted by the European Parliament and the Council on the inland transport of dangerous goods, as it will only increase uncontrollable risks while shipping dangerous goods, and prompt the EU’s chemical industry to relocate.
