Introduction
Before elaborating the scientific approach regarding European road haulage we should better focus on the importance of this issue to an average EU citizen on which – whether he wants it or not - this matter has a great impact. Road transport industry is a major actor on Europe’s socio-economic scene. By involving a vast range of servicing and industrial activities it contributes all together up to 11,5% of GDP and therefore is a provider of significant financial income.

Coverage of the total employment rate by 5% in EU and governing almost 2,3bln Eur of annual turnover makes this activity efficient and leaves place for growth from economical point of view. Nevertheless this growth in the long-term attitude is highly dependent on infrastructure development and to the ability to create congestion-free...
