  • Problèmes en perspective pour les semi-remorques à rideaux coulissants non certifiées TIR
    Les inspections techniques de cinq à six pays ont délivré un certificat TIR à des semi-remorques à rideaux coulissants standard qui ne satisfont pas aux critères techniques pour une telle certification. Le problème a été abordé la semaine dernière à Genève. Il a été décidé que les douanes seront mises au courant de sorte à renforcer les contrôles. Les semi-remorques certifiées à tort seront arrêtées à la frontière. Les transporteurs risquent de devoir payer une facture salée, car leur cargaison devra être transbordée à bord d’un véhicule certifié.
