Transfrigoroute International gets political

Brussels, Belgium: Transfrigoroute International has pledged to raise its profile at EU level and work more closely with the International Road Transport Union.

Transfrigoroute, which held its first meeting of the board of representatives recently, vowed to “engage more in the IRU and make its voice heard more effectively in Brussels”. Transfrigoroute’s three main lobbying issues are the EU white paper on transport, the Euro vignette and F-gas.

Transfrigoroute’s annual general meeting takes place on 29 to 30 September in Valencia.
