End of year statement from NLA

Date: 22 December, 2016

Its never good to reach your peak too early. Sportsmen and lobbyist share this knowledge. We will need a lot of strength and effort in the coming years for when the proposals from the Commission arrive and for the discussions between Member States and the European Parliament. But we have the strength and the resources to stay on peak. Once again the Nordic cooperation will show its true value. Four associations from the Nordic countries working together for the best results in Bruxelles can only be the best way to use our resources and to fight for our gains.


Alternative fuels for road transport

Date: 28 November, 2016

NLA is in favour of use of advanced bio-fuels, and will want to see that it is explored. To find solutions that are sustainable we will need innovation and new ideas and a supportive policy framework which makes it possible to explore new ideas. On the scoreboard for transport recently made by the Commission, the Nordic countries are high up on the list of use of alternative fuels in Europe. We need to build on this basis and continue to develop and expand the availability and use of bio-fuels. Read more about the options.



A week in EU Transport Policy

Date: 23 November, 2016

France and Germany have confirmed their joint fight – with others – against social dumping and in favour of a transport and logistics sector that continue to be attractive and interesting for young people, offering long careers. Neither they nor the Commissioner see a conflict between fighting social dumping and innovating the sector. In fact it goes hand in hand to make the industry sustainable in a financial, social and innovative manner. But both challenges need solutions for EUs transport and logistics industry to survive. That’s what last week showed us about EU transport policy.
