ABSTRACT
This article summarizes the views of the Institute of Logistics and Transport on the questions raised in the consultation document 'Modernizing the Taxation of the Haulage Industry,' which was published in November 2001. The institute agrees with the objectives that underlie the proposal for a lorry road-user charge in Great Britain, namely, that lorry taxes should not discriminate on the basis of nationality and should be geared towards road-users contributing towards the true costs they impose on society. It is right that time-based or distance-based charging are the two main options for operating a lorry road-user charge. One advantage of the distance-based charging over a time basis is that hauliers in Great Britain whose vehicles travel extensively on the European continent would not pay charges in Great Britain for that part of their annual mileage, whereas under an annual charging system they would pay the same as hauliers whose annual mileage is wholly in Great Britain.
