Stakeholders in the Maritime Logistic Supply Chain call for a repeal of the Consortia BER
Thu. 21 Feb 2019
Organisations representing the main maritime logistics industry stakeholders (shipping lines, shippers, freight forwarders, terminal operators, labour, port authorities) as well as EU national maritime authorities met on the 8th February in Paris at a roundtable hosted by the International Transport Forum (ITF OECD). The objective of the meeting was to exchange views and positions which could be relevant for the ongoing Review of the EU Consortia Block Exemption Regulation assessing the validity of the BER which provides the liner shipping industry a generous exemption from normal competition rules.
