THE DEPARTMENT of Transport has announced arrangements for allocating additional road haulage permits for France and Italy.
1800 French permits are to be distributed to operators with existing allocations. These allocations will be automatically increased by the International Road Freight Office and no application is necessary.
Operators with general quota permits exceeding 12 who continued to use the French co-operation quota scheme in 1978 will be allowed a further three permits. This is automatic and no application is necessary.
Operators with no existing allocation of French general quota permits but who provided at least six backloads under the co-operation quota scheme in 1978 will be given one general quota permit for each two backloads, up to a maximum of ten permits. Again, no application is necessary.
Operators who have French general quota permits which they want to use for the transit journeys through France can apply for Italian permits. Applications must reach the International Road Freight Office, Westgate House, Westgate Road, Newcastleupon-Tyne NE I 1TW by February 23.
