EU Requests Members Establish Green Lanes

Posted by Marta Gargallo on 4/3/20 5:00 PM

The coronavirus pandemic is having a major disruptive impact on European transport and mobility.  For this reason, on March 23, 2020, the European Union (EU) Commission issued new advice on how to implement its Guidelines for border management in order to keep the freight moving across the European Union during the current pandemic:

  • Member States are requested to designate relevant internal border-crossing points on the trans- European network (TEN-T) as “green lane” border crossings.
  • The “green lane” border crossing should be open to all freight, whatever goods they are carrying.
  • Crossing the border, including any checks and health screening, should not take more than 15 minutes.
