Impact of the liberalisation of road freight transport between the EU and Turkey

The study was prepared by ICF International, TRT Trasporti e Territorio and DIW Econ and published by the European Commission (Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport).

Road freight transport between the EU and Turkey is currently regulated by bilateral intergovernmental agreements between EU Member States and Turkey.

These agreements include quota and licensing schemes for freight forwarders on both sides. The study shows that an EU agreement that provides for deregulation would give a slight but positive boost to trade, production and employment for both EU member states and Turkey.
