EU Tries to Keep Goods Flowing with Green Lanes

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has announced so-called “green lane” measures to make sure goods keep flowing throughout the whole of the single market.

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