Situation on the Slovak market
The performance in freight and passenger road transport is decreasing, the size of Slovak fleets is shrinking. Why do we see these negative trends? What short-term and what long-term measures and steps need to be taken to improve the situation of Slovak carriers. What are the possible solutions to the driver shortage in Slovakia? What will cause a push for low emission freight transport and how to move forward on the issue of greening fleets. Is there an alternative to Brussels’ ambitious plans to introduce new technologies? Digitisation and automation in transport is both an opportunity and a risk. On the one hand, there is the opportunity to enhance safety, speed up financial flows and better supervise market compliance; on the other hand, there is the risk of disproportionate state intervention and the impact on competitiveness of unequal treatment between states.
