Consultation period: 29/11/2013 - 31/01/2014 (deadline extended to:) 11/02/2014

online questionnaire  for enterprises

online questionnaire  for non-enterprises (other organisations, authorities, etc.)

Objective of the consultation

This targeted stakeholder consultation is addressed to enterprises active in the transport and logistics sector and to organisations and public administrations related to that sector.

The purpose of this consultation is to provide input to an evaluation of the EU approach to jobs and working conditions across transport modes announced in the Commission's 2011 Transport White Paper (action 11).

To prepare that evaluation the Directorate General for Mobility and Transport and the Joint Research Centre (IPTS) launched a study which is being carried out by JRC-IPTS with the external support from the firms Panteia and PriceWaterhouseCoopers.

As part of this study, this consultation seeks expert information from firms but also from stakeholder organisations and public administrations.

The study assesses the adequacy of the current and near future supply of labour and skills to the sector taking into account factors such as the relative attractiveness of transport jobs. It then moves on to find out what can be done about the possible shortages. The contribution of your firm or organisation is of high relevance to provide a view from real experiences concerning the functioning of the labour market.

How to submit your contribution

This consultation exists in two versions. One for enterprises, and one for non-enterprises like (non profit) organisations and authorities. The consultation does not target private citizens.

If your enterprise or organisation is active in more than one mode of transport, and your answers differ from mode to mode, then you may submit a contribution for each transport mode.
