ABSTRACT
According figures published by the DETR show, the number of foreign trucks operating in Great Britain and going to Continental Europe has doubled in just five years, from 1995 to 2000. According to the Freight Transport Association, the reasons for this were the strength of sterling pulling in imports and the competitive advantage gained by foreign operators because of diesel and vehicle tax reductions.
