Greece has failed to respect EU legislation by restricting the registration of public use vehicles and private tankers, and by introducing fixed tariffs for transportation services.
The Commission has found that access to road transport activities, in Greece, is being refused to newcomers without considering the individual situation and financial capacity of the applicant undertakings.
Furthermore, the Commission holds that the obligation to charge fixed tariffs dissuades foreign operators from acceding to the road haulage and to the petrol marketing sectors. The Commission also considers that it impedes the ones already established from further developing their business.
