Results

The result of the project are the following:

  • an analysis of how the access to the profession of national and international road haulage and passenger transport service differs in practice in the project partner countries (cf. the proposed Directive) ->to identify anomalies and make proposals to harmonize practices;
  • the type of documents required for access to the profession -> highlighting the differences and comparability of documents and requirements;
  • how these documents are mutually recognized in the different partner countries ->highlighting differences in practice;
  • to determine the unity of the profession of national and international road haulage and passenger transport operators -> to directly determine the knowledge and skills of road transport operators
  • on the basis of the analysis of the survey, a Competence map is drawn up for the knowledge, skills and competences needed for the job
  • the creation of a training package to support the needs of freight and passenger transport operators, in addition to everyday work (a combination of face-to-face and e-learning);
  • recommendations for how to support and reform the Transport Operators Competence in Europe. 

OUTPUT 1:

Overview and analysis of the current state of competence of the transport company and analysis of the legal framework and current practices: The aim is to identify the areas of competence of the transport company that they need in their daily work. The required area is divided into modules, units and learning outcomes.

Results: 

1. A questionnaire was drawn up on the role of carriers’ professional skills in the development of a transport undertaking’s business. The questionnaire was sent to the managers of 20 transport companies in each partner country. The survey reflected expertise in the EU 1071/2009 regulation, which had the following areas of expertise:

– Civil, commercial, tax and social law

– Business and financial administration;

– Market access;

– Technical standards and technical aspects of operation;

– Road safety.

The results of the analysis based on the results of the survey highlighted that many of the above-mentioned areas of expertise and needs are considered important. The conclusion is that all areas of expertise in EU Regulation 1071/2009 need to be included in further training, taking into account other factors related to today’s changes, such as the environment, digitalisation and risk management (unexpected situations).

2. The analysis of the elements and documents of the operating license requirement related to the transport sector was carried out as an inter-operator study. No major differences were found between partner countries, as most of the areas surveyed were based on Directive 1071/2009, which has been transposed fairly uniformly.
