Transport is a key pillar of the single market, allowing for the free movement of goods and people across borders, as well as being a very important part of the free movement of services in the EU. The cost and efficiency of transport services directly affect trade flows, mobility and the competitiveness of European companies.

Yet, companies are experiencing that Europe is not yet fully connected and there are also significant regulatory barriers remaining, which hampers business opportunities, fair competition and ultimately growth and job creation.

Ensuring sufficient investment in future and existing infrastructure is therefore essential, establishing a solid foundation for transport in Europe.

It is also crucial to remove remaining regulatory, administrative and technical barriers in all modes of transport and avoid the introduction of new restrictions. Addressing these barriers and completing the trans-European transport networks (TEN-T) are fundamental for more efficient interoperable transport solutions and mobility.
