Dear friends,

See below some important changes about trucking regulation in FRANCE :

France wants minimum wage for foreign drivers as of 1.7.2016

Paris follows the German example - which has provoked an international outcry - but the French measure is fundamentally different.

France is following in Germany’s footsteps when it comes to road cabotage : the French National Assembly said, on 15 February, that it hopes to adopt a measure providing that truck drivers carrying out cabotage operations should be eligible for the social protection rules and minimum hourly wage (€9.61) currently in force in France.

 

To summurize :

The Macron’s law is increasing the rules for the transport of cargo by truck in France for the foreign companies (European or other countries)

The law has been voted last year and the decret has been published last 7th of April to be applicable as from 1st of July.

3 main changes :

  • The french minimum salary and the french social rules (minimum hollidays) must be applicable for the foreign employees working on the french territory

  • The drivers will need to be able to show an attestation of “foreign-based driver“ + a copy of the contract of employment in case of control by the french authorities

  • Foreign operators must design a representative in France
