From 2 February 2022, if you operate loaded goods journeys in and between European Member States (cabotage or cross-trade), you may need to register information digitally about your journeys on a new EU web-based portal.

Details of the operator, driver, driver employment details, dates of travel, and the vehicle used need to be posted before the journey commences.

The new rules apply if you use:

  • vans of any size or other light goods vehicles (sometimes called ‘light commercial vehicles’)
  • vans towing trailers
  • cars towing trailers
  • HGVs
  • HGVs towing trailers

The rules also apply if you transport goods between two points in the EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway for commercial purposes. This includes:

  • cabotage jobs
  • cross-trade jobs
  • moving goods for your own business’ use
