Europe must do more to break down barriers to economic development, according to Scott Price, head of DHL Express in Europe.
Speaking at a European Automotive Manufacturers’ Association event in Brussels, Price said: “The EU and the Member States should aim to provide a balanced regulatory scheme enabling more efficient and sustainable transport and optimised supply chain solutions that generate at for both the European industry and society.
“Logistics and transport are indispensable factors for trade and economic growth. We feel the current economic climate, but we also face more permanent barriers such as inconsistent regulations on transport, environment and internal market in EU. Inevitably, this has a limiting and restrictive effect on economic development.”
And he warned: “To reach the highest level of efficiency, sustainability and reliability for all modes of transport, European governments and industry need to work hand in hand on an adequate regulatory framework for the benefit of all stakeholders – industry and consumers alike.”
