IRU Position on road user charging for HGVs, (2004)
As a response to the introduction of road use charges based on mileage, this IRU Position stresses that the road transport industry has always paid its way and is prepared to continue doing so. However, the industry would welcome a common framework for charging HGVs as fair competition on the goods transport market depends on a consistent application of the non-discrimination principle. Furthermore, the IRU considers that the introduction of road user charging should be fiscally neutral and calculated on the basis of costs directly linked to infrastructure.
