The importance and regulation of transport and logistics

In the EU alone, the transport and logistics sector accounts for 5% of the gross domestic product of all EU Member States and employs almost 11 million people. It covers not only land transport but also water and air transport. The sector is governed by a wide range of legislation, including on issues such as climate change, passenger rights, clean fuels, etc.

The transport and logistics sector is evolving rapidly in the current age of globalisation. The importance of this sector was particularly highlighted during the COVID-19 pandemic, when the rise of e-commerce led to a shortage of workers for companies involved in transport and logistics activities.

Given the high demand for staff, transport and logistics companies started to actively search for employees, which increased the need for businesses to draw up employment contracts, job descriptions and non-competition agreements, etc., that comply with legal requirements.
