All the vans in Denmark must be re-registered within the next four months. It happens because there 1. July will enter the new, tougher rules in force for the carriage of goods by road.
It writes the stock Exchange.
According to the newspaper sent Færdselsstyrelsen last week a letter out to the 286.000 danes, who own vans on the new rules.
the Rules mean that all vans that weigh more than two tonnes must be re-registered. Even if they are not being used to driving goods, but instead acts as a common firmakørsel.
Despite the warnings from the government that it would be too expensive for industry and difficult to enforce, the rules were adopted in June 2018 by the Social democrats, SF, Dansk Folkeparti, Enhedslisten and the Alternative.
It came to pass, according to the stock Exchange in order to combat social dumping in the transport industry. According to the circle of political parties were the new rules to fight social dumping through increased regulation and registration.
Out of the more than 286.000 registered vans in Denmark, is used around 11.500 according to the ministry of Transport to road haulage.
At the Danish Construction association is highly critical of the new rules.
- yes, that means that 96 per cent. of the cars used to firmakørsel and thereby not covered by the law the actual rule. They get just the administrative hassle and costs of re-registration, says enterprise director, the Danish Construction Torben Liborius to the Exchange.
