European Parliament backs EU road transport agreements with Ukraine and Moldova

The European Parliament’s Transport and Tourism Committee has approved two separate agreements with Ukraine and Moldova to ease the cross-border transport of goods.

These agreements will replace existing bilateral transport agreements with EU countries and will facilitate road transport of goods, allowing carriers from Ukraine, Moldova and the rest of the EU to transit and transport between each other’s territories without requiring specific permits.

The two agreements are part of the EU’s response to the disruption to the transport sector in Ukraine and Moldova caused by the Russian war against Ukraine.

In addition, the EU-Ukraine agreement will allow Ukrainian drivers to continue using their existing Ukrainian driving licences in the EU, without the need for an international driving licence.

Both agreements were provisionally in force from 29 June 2022.
