The Danish Road Traffic Agency has published a new English version of Guide on cabotage operations, which enters into force on may 31st 2023

The guide describes the rules on cabotage operations and contains examples in relation to:

  • calculation of relevant periods
  • the documentation, which transport operators must present during cabotage operations in Denmark.

The update primarily describes the adjusted legal interpretation of the Danish Road Traffic Agency regarding transport of:

  • empty containers
  • empty semi-trailers
  • returnable packaging (pallets, flower transport stands or similar)

Furthermore, it describes the calculation of periods which expires on a public holiday, Saturday or Sunday. 

The guide replaces the previous guide on cabotage operations.
