New taxes for companies, penalties for businesses, restrictions related to tachographs, environmental regulations, new road tolls, and changes related to road transport documentation – these are just some of the areas covered in our 2024 handbook, produced in-house by trans.iNFO’s pan-European editorial team.

Nine journalists and editors were involved in the preparation of the guide, which sheds light on major changes in laws and regulations that have taken place or will take place this year in 14 European Union countries and in the United Kingdom.

The guide has been divided into two parts. The first section covers regulations that apply across the EU, while the latter part details legal and tax changes on a country-by-country basis.

“The most important changes for the transport and forwarding industry in 2024” is available now for free.
