Spot Checks in the fields of Road Haulage Act and Toll Charges
Spot checks in order to monitor the adherence to legal regulations in the fields of road haulage and toll charges are regularly carried out in carrier companies (transport companies) that operate as commercial carriers and/or as own-account transport companies and contract awarders operating in accordance with § 7c GüKG (parties concluding freight or haulage contracts).
And in the framework of fact-finding measures, follow-up controls are also carried out with owners and holders of motorised haulage vehicles (such as truck lessors, leasing companies etc.) as well as with those participating in the commercial transactions of the hauled goods (such as producers, sellers, buyers, agents etc.).
