Abstract

Purpose of this paper: Beginning of this year, the long lasting deregulation process of European road transport was finalized. Now every road haulier from the European Economic Area is free to conduct all sorts of international transport like bilateral, cross-trade and cabotage on a common market which has a decisive impact on the road haulage business. Design/methodology/approach: Examination of detailed industry statistics from EUROSTAT and a series of surveys conducted among Austrian road transport operators since 2003 give strong empirical evidence about recent changes in European road haulage within the European Economic Area. Findings: Apart from a rise of low-cost road hauliers from "new" member states like Poland, new business models evolved among companies in the same business from "old" member states like Austria setting up haulier divisions abroad with freight forwarding divisions at home still engaged in transport organisation and dispatching of trucks. Research limitations/implications (if applicable: - What is original/value of paper: It shows new findings about impacts of European road transport deregulation both on economy as well as company level.
