" German Road Haulage Tolls Set to Rise to Fund Infrastructure - Latest industry shipping news from the Handy Shipping Guide

GERMANY – Earlier this month, the German Federal Cabinet passed the proposal on the 5th Federal Road Toll Act which will see a sharp increase in the HGV tolls from January 1, 2019. The plan is for the billions of additional revenue extracted from road haulage operators to go directly into the expansion of the country's road network infrastructure, additionally tolls on all federal trunk roads are already due to increase from July 1, 2018, as ratified last year."
"Of all the UK’s business sectors, the transport industry is probably facing the biggest skills shortage and urgently needs to recruit 45,000 drivers.
In an effort to address the issue, the Road Haulage Association, together with Close Brothers Asset Finance and TRS Training Ltd have launched a ground-breaking programme to help small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), companies with less than 20 vehicles, recruit young drivers to secure the skills they need for future growth."
