Notice of increased cost due to necessary and positive changes in the road transport sector
February 2nd, 2022, the implementation of Mobility Package will continue, as previously informed. The mobility package is a resolution that is both necessary and positive as it primarily aims to improve and even out the working conditions for drivers throughout Europe.
However, the decision, which is completely outside DSV's control, has consequences for the transport industry and the business community in general, through its content and impact on national legislation.
Increased cost due to implementation of EU Mobility Package
The consequences of the introduction have been realized at a rapid pace in the form of, for example:
- further reduction of available capacity
- less efficient use of existing capacity
- changed and more expensive production solutions
- changed lead times
- requirements for increased follow-up and administration in the transport chain
Due to the above, DSV Road Norway will, as of 15th February 2022, introduce a supplement to be able to handle the consequences of Mobility Package and as far as possible be able to ensure the capacities required to maintain quality and delivery times.
For information about the levels of the supplement, which will vary between different countries, please contact us on email email@example.com
The supplement may also be adjusted gradually based on the consequences of the continued implementation of Mobility Package.

In December 2021, DSV Road hosted a webinar for our customers. If you did not have the opportunity to attend, you are welcome to watch the webinar now. Note that the webinar is in English and Danish.
We appreciate that the measures for an improved work situation now are being implemented throughout Europe, which we hope in the long run will result in an additional number of new hauliers and drivers to the industry.
In case of any questions to the above, you are welcome to contact your regular sales contact at DSV or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
