Call to reduce waiting time at EU borders
The International Road Union (IRU) has called for the implementation of fast green lanes for accredited EU authorised economic operators (AEOs).
Green lanes would significantly reduce inspections and waiting times at EU external borders and would be particularly beneficial for smaller businesses operating in the road freight transport sector.
Facilitating faster border crossings, green lanes would guarantee that transport operators derive enough benefit through participation in the AEO scheme to outweigh the administrative burden of applying for and maintaining the AEO status, according to the IRU. (ben)
