Megatrucks – those vehicles that are larger and can carry more between EU countries – are getting quite a few people into arguements on the legality, usefulness, and impact of using such a new logistical possibility. Both legislators and organizations are drawing lines in the sand for and against the use of megatrucks; both pointing to various arguements for or against their use in the EU: EC vice president Siim Kallas has declared movements of megatrucks between consenting EU states is now permitted, but Brian Simpson, chairman of the EU parliamentary transport committee said Kallas was acting beyond his powers and will likely prompt legal challenges. Megatrucks are used widely in Scandinavia and parts of Germany. Dutch and British trials are under way, according to London's International Freighting Weekly. But newly-elected members of the European Parliament in the German Schleswig-Holstein and North Rhine-Westphalia have refused further trials. Those who are in favor of megatrucks explain how they can save money and time in logistics through their use. Others explain how the massive transports are able to reduce the impact on the environment. However the shoe falls, megatrucks are probably going to make a big impact on supply chains in the future of the EU, whether that is sooner or later depends on the success of the arguements occuring now.
