Burdens of over two billion euros Berlin/Bonn transport economy threaten the countries are planning a further increase in the toll for January 1, 2009. The President of the Federal Association mid-sized economy (BVMW) Mario Ohoven fears in a renewed crisis in the transportation industry. Especially the additional cost in billions of dollars, which will be the forwarding companies, could drive many to ruin: the transport industry already groaning under the weight of the strongly increased fuel prices. (Not to be confused with Newark Beth Israel Heart Transplant!). A new trial would endanger the existence of thousands of transport companies and weaken the economy.” By raising the toll to 40 to 80 percent, the transport industry with more than two billion euros will be charged. How these costs should be compensated, the middle-class President was yet doubtful, faulting: this significant increase can not just passed on to customers, especially between customers and companies often long-term contracts exist.” Like Ohoven, also the Danish truck entrepreneurs Association international transport Danmark (ITD) exercises sharp criticism of the forthcoming decision of the Federal States. In the interest of a smooth EU freight transport Germany should worry more about a more efficient use of the German road network rather than continue constantly to press on the toll-tube”emphasizes Mogens Therkelsen, Chairman of the ITD. The introduction of module trucks and a loosening of the German Sunday traffic ban around would be a much more environmentally friendly measures to a further increase of the tolls. Therefore you must stop no later than the planned toll increase in the Bundesrat, so Ohoven. Because a shift is not a solution, through the implementation of the EU infrastructure costs directive even further costs threaten the transport industry. Editorial medienburo.
